In another post, I mentioned that I have been waiting for a decision on a revised article for more than 11 months.
During those months of waiting, I have contacted the Editor-in-Chief (EiC) twice to inquire about the article's status, and she has always told me that I would receive her assessment soon. The last time, 1 1/2 months ago, she told me I would receive a response no later than the following week (to date, I have not received any update).
Understanding that EiCs are busy people, I don't know to what extent it would be advisable to email her again now (I fear that my insistence will negatively affect the decision on my article).
Do you think I should contact EiC and send her a friendly reminder, or should I forget it and wait? How long should I wait to write to her again without becoming a pest?
