Is it okay to mail an Associate Editor in his personal e-mail?
I have submitted a manuscript in a journal and I want to know the status of my manuscript.
The publisher of my journal is "World Scientific". There is no option to mail the Associate Editor of the journal to whom I have assigned my manuscript. Neither is any email address of the Associate Editor provided in the Journal Hoempage.Only his name and affiliation has been given.
Also there is only two templates of email address provided which are 1.Extending Submission Deadline. 2.Extending Revision Deadline.
There is no template to ask about the status of the manuscript.
Is it fine to mail the Associate Editor in his personal email provided in his homepage?
