We have submitted a paper to a journal, and received comments from the reviewers. We are about to submit revised paper and response letter to the journal.
As we revise the paper, it sometimes bugs me that the paper is not quite perfect. There are things like minor typos, grammar, and even some more major flaws like parts where the phrasing should be improved.
I am trying to think ahead about what happens after the paper is accepted. Assuming that the paper gets accepted, do we get the chance to make final edits to correct some of these bugs in the paper (that do affect readability but do not affect correctness)?
Note I actually have two published papers to my name, but in both instances, after writing the first paper submission together, my collaborators performed the work of responding to the reviewers and getting the paper into the final product, without involving me in the process. (I am speculating that this may be because those two papers were done during my Master's study, but the paper revision was done when I had moved away to do my PhD.) While I appreciate that I didn't need to do more work, unfortunately, this meant that I did not have any experience with what happens after getting reviews, and I don't know what is the process to close the loop and get the paper published.
