Recently I have submitted comments on a article to Elsevier journal. These comments include rectification and proper implementation of certain technique. The editor of journal told me that, they will first send my comments to author of article for response and after that my comments will be sent for review.
Now my query is, why and for what purpose they are seeking response from author of paper ? Although I have no problem with that but I am curious to know, how that author would responds to my comments on his/her paper ?
PS. I have checked similar question here but I find this question not so useful.
