I have submitted a manuscript around two months ago. The reviewers gave me generally good comments, and the editor suggested "minor revision".
Problem is, I think the main part of my manuscript have a big problem. I am currently making further readings into the subject and delving deeper into the math. All previous research suggest that I am giving an incomplete solution, resulting eventually in an inaccurate simulation.
Although I have a large mistake in the manuscript. This mistake if corrected will support my results even more (Lucky me).
I will tell the editor of course about the mistake, but I need time to correct my simulation, manuscript etc...
My questions are:
1- Can I ask the editor form more time?
2- Will the editor reject my paper because it have a major mistake?
