有的时候, 我们发出邮件很久没有得到回复, 我们会再写一封邮件过去询问一下情况. (比如编辑一直没有回复, 就可以发邮件过去提醒一下, 就比如下面参考资料中给出的情况.)
Through Elsevier online system I have responded to the journal's revision request, and after 2 days, the status has changed to 'with editor.'
However, for the last 2 months the status hasn't changed. Should I have to write an email to an editor about the process for the paper? I am a bit worried if I am giving impressions like urging them. But waiting for the decision gets too long. Please advise me how to write email politely.
大部分的编辑可以懂得这种焦虑, 只需要保证邮件的态度比较有礼貌即可. Most editors understand the kind of anxiety that authors go through. However, make sure that you maintain a polite and courteous tone throughout the email.
Dear Mr./Ms. XXX [Editor's Name],
I have submitted my revised manuscript titled XXXX [manuscript id: xxxx] to your journal via the online submission system on dd/mm/yyyy [date of submission]. Two days later, the status changed to 'with editor.' However, the status has remained unchanged ever since.
I would be grateful if you could let me know whether there has been any further progress on my submission.
