SCI论文投稿系列之如何回复审稿人意见?

Responding to Editor and Reviewer Feedback

  SCI论文投稿系列之如何回复审稿人意见?。当回复不是单纯拒稿时,大部分都会再加上审稿意见希望作者澄清与内文修正。审稿意见来自期刊编辑与评审,一般正面的审稿意见有两种形式:

  期刊对你的论文感到兴趣,而且评审希望你做些增删来优化SCI论文,收到这样的信就代表你已经离发表不远了。

  你可能收到一封拒稿的信但里面却写着期刊会重新审核论文如果论文有重新做实质上的修改,包括增加新的数据。用棒球来做比喻的话,就是成功击出并上了一垒但还不能上二垒,这时候你可以修改你的论文并进行追加实验来满足期刊要求。

  不论你前面的表现如何,期刊接受率都会根据你如何回覆这些评审意见来决定。当你回信时,要谨记几点: 

Dos Dont’s
Thank the editor and reviewers for the time they spent reviewing your manuscript. Similarly, maintain a respectful and deferential tone throughout. Remember, you want them to like you and your work. Don’t give them unnecessary reasons for tossing your manuscript into the reject pile. Don’t insult your editors or reviewers. Be respectful. Take care not to use phrases that suggest the editor or review made a mistake. (See list of useful phrases further below.)
Answer all questions asked by the editor and reviewers. Also make sure to respond to all comments, including those that might be a general thank you or praise. Don’t ignore a question or comment. Failure to address every point will prolong the process and decreases the chance of a speedy acceptance.
If you can’t respond to a question or comment, then explain why not.  This way, you are addressing the issue even if you can’t provide a specific answer or solution. Don’t justify your failure to sufficiently conduct a study by stating economic or other personal limitations. You won’t sway editors or reviewers if they feel your research is lacking, regardless of the circumstances. However, if you need to restate the SCOPE of your study so that your findings are complete as presented, do so.
Copy the full text of reviewer comments and include relevant responses under each section of the original text (as shown in the template below). Formatting is important. Use bullets, different fonts, bold or italics to help distinguish your replies from the reviewers’ comments. Don’t partially address or rephrase an editor’s comment or question to suit your needs. If they asked you a tough question, you’ll need to tackle it sufficiently to satisfy them.
If your original submission contained the appropriate answers to the reviewer’s questions, specify the sections that address the queries. Don’t let your frustrations influence the tone of your writing if you feel that a reviewer asked you about a point that you believe has already been addressed in your paper. (See list of useful phrases further below.)
 If you added new visual aids or other supplementary materials to your revised paper, make sure to point those out clearly in the letter by referencing relevant page and line numbers, figure numbers, etc. Don’t info dump in a disorganized manner. Formatting your rebuttal letter will reduce miscommunication and help the reviewers and editors quickly find the information they requested.
If the journal gives you a deadline for your response, be timely.  
Be concise in your responses. Don’t veer off on a tangent to discuss matters not requested by the journal.
