I want to respectfully ask the editor to finish the review of my paper in the shortest time possible, because I got an early deadline to defend my thesis.
Here are some details on the review process of the submitted paper:
- Field: Computer science
- The 1st review took 6 months, then I received the comments of the reviewers with "major revision"
- After revising the paper, it was re-submitted, and now it is 3 months since that without any feedback.
What do you think about my essay:
Our paper intitled [XX] has been submitted to the [XXX] journal in [DATE1], after 6 months we received the reviewers' remarks that were taken into consideration while revising the paper. In [DATE2] (3 months ago), we re-submitted the revised version and we answered all the reviewers' comments in separated letter.
Currently, I have a time constraint to defend my thesis that requires a published journal paper, for this reason I am wondering if there is a possibility to have the results of reviewing our revised paper in the best short time please?
