I wrote a paper that is a literature review. It has been accepted with minor revisions. However, I when I read it again - 3 months after submitting it, and thus, 3 months without thinking about it - I noticed passages that could still be improved. I know that a paper is never perfect, but I am itching to add some enhancement...
So I wonder how much it is acceptable to improve it now, beyond modifications pointed out by reviewers’ comments (i.e. on parts that are already ok according to reviewers).
I can think of 3 types of improvements:
- Fixing typos, that had also been missed by reviewers,
- Style, phrasing improvements,
- Adding new information (e.g. a paper that I’ve discovered since I’ve submitted my paper).
Since it is my first paper, I do not want to give the impression of having submitted an unfinished work the first time.
