Manuscript number 2 submitted!

How it always feels.

Finally submitted that second manuscript I’ve been working on since August-September! There was a slight delay while I was on leave during October, but we got there!

Obviously this is now a waiting game while we hear back from the journal, but fingers crossed it’s not too painful a process. 🤞🏼 hooray for peer-review.

This process will repeat again- but I’ll wait another three weeks before I start going stir crazy again.

  1. I have been a reviewer myself of some Animal Science papers. If it is a well-written paper as I suppose yours then it is a pleasure. But if it is a paper not so well written/organized and you think the paper deserves better it can be more laborious to give suggestions to the author.

    1. Thankfully I have a supervisor with excellent written communication skills (who is also heavily involved in reviewing and editing manuscripts for publication), so I’m in good hands in that sense! I think sometimes people can get carried away by the narrative and keep asking for more data, even if it’s a little outside the scope of our current work. 😅 Also reviewer #2 is always a pain. Law of the universe I think.
