I have been working on a research study remotely with my PI for over two years and we finally submitted our paper early last year. We received some promising feedback from the reviewers and had most of the responses ready as of early last year.
Unfortunately, my PI had a few personal issues and we were unable to make some final touches and submit our responses since then. I later heard that my PI's issues were resolved so I tried re-connecting with her via email on multiple occasions. She is still very interested in having our paper published, and even secured industry funding for a follow-up study.
However, its been over a year and we still haven't been able to finalize our response submission. I dont want to pester her with multiple messages but at the same time it would be ideal to have our study published in an important journal, especially when we are so close to the finish line. Any ideas on how I can approach my PI and help navigate this conversation?
