I have submitted a paper to an Elsevier journal. They sent the first decision on my paper as a major revision on October 28 and gave me two months to revise the manuscript.
Currently, the deadline is so close while I am stuck in a problem with my manuscript. I sent a request of extension on the night of December 24 to the editorial office of the journal.
Now, I am worried about not hearing from them before missing the deadline due to the holidays.
Is their office closed on December 26? (I think their office is located in the UK.)
What is your suggestion in this case?
If I miss the deadline without no hearing from the editor due to holidays, the editor will extend the deadline after seeing my request sent on December 24?
