I submitted a major revision for an article to a World Scientific journal today. However I am in a confused state. I had to submit two documents: 1. Revised Manuscript, 2. Response to Reviewers, both in PDF format.
Though I submitted both the documents, I find that in the complete PDF that I submitted to the journal, my "Revised Manuscript" is attached first and then the "Response to Reviewers" is attached second. The complete PDF which I submitted is of 15 pages. In pages 1-10 the revised manuscript is attached, and from 11-15 the comments are attached.
I think it should be the other way round, i.e. first "Response to Reviewers" and then "Revised Manuscript" should have been attached.
I wrote to the editor about this but no one replied.
I am worried that the reviewers will find me careless because of this mistake. Will it have any effect on my manuscript?
Is it possible for someone to please let me know how the revised manuscript is sent to the reviewer? Does the reviewer receive everything (revised manuscript+comments) as a single PDF file or are they sent separately?
This is my first time, so I am not completely sure how the process works. Can someone who has done reviews for a journal (I am sure there are many here) please help?
