Going through the peer review process can be very challenging; particularly, when one has invested so much time in their manuscript and a reviewer thinks it needs more work. This workshop aims to provide some useful advice on how to deal with the reviewer comments and keep the submission moving smoothly through the publishing process. In this workshop, you will be familiarized with the initial steps you should take, and the correct tone and language to use in your response letter. In addition, this workshop intends to help you to see your manuscript through the eyes of an editor and reviewer; hence, you can spot any shortfalls or mistakes prior to submitting the manuscript. Ultimately, this workshop facilitates levelling the playing field by revealing what an editor really wants.
