Submitting a revised manuscript through ScholarOne Manuscripts
Revise your manuscript, addressing the reviewers' comments. These changes should be highlighted in the manuscript by using track changes in MS Word or by using bold or colored text.
Outline these changes in text, so that you can submit them to the journal along with your revised manuscript.
Please note that if the journal is double-blind, your revised manuscript should be double-blind as well.
Once you have revised your manuscript, you can submit your revision from your Author Centre. Please do not start a new submission. Locate your original manuscript in your Author Dashboard, and click on "Create a revision":
If your revision deadline has expired, please contact the editorial office of the journal for further assistance.

If the journal allows you to upload this as a Word document as part of your PDF proof, please indicate this in the "response to decision letter textbox." You will then be able to upload them in the “file upload” stage.
