I have several papers that are resubmitted to journals with minor revisions.
I feel they are very much likely to be accepted by the time my actual Ph.D. viva takes place in one month.
But I need to submit my PhD thesis now. I do not want to list those papers as simply "under review". I want to indicate they are very likely to be accepted, as they are resubmitted only with minor revisions.
What is the correct and polite phrase to say the state of these papers?
If you are an examiner, would you be unhappy to see that I indicate some papers are likely to be accepted?
