I submitted an article on the first of May, and just got the comments from the reviewers today (31st of October).
The editor specified that I have 2 weeks to address the comments, but I am going on a hiking holiday in 4 days for 3 weeks, and this was planned already at the start of the year.
Is being on holiday a valid reason to ask for an extension? This is my first article ever, so I am not quite sure of the rules.
The journal page says that you can ask for an extension for valid reasons, so I'm wondering whether a holiday is one.
