Last week I received the pleasant message that my very first journal paper got accepted. More precisely, the journal "accepts the manuscript in its current form". The reviewers did have some remarks, however. I know that I do not have to correct some bigger discussion points that they have, but there were also a couple of typos that they pointed out

Do I need to correct those typos myself or will the reviewer/editor fix those, given that the mistakes are recognized?

Note. The manuscript submission website does not allow me to make any more changes, since its acceptance. I would probably have to e-mail the editor to correct the minor mistakes.

    Ask the editor. Different journals have different policies, we cannot tell you how it works in your case.

Had your paper not been accepted as is, you would definitely have made these changes. Although typos are usually taken care of in the copyediting and page proofing stage, I think it would be a good idea to write to the editor asking whether you are required to make the changes.
