The fate of revised articles

This year, as part of our annual analysis of how the journal is doing, we looked at the fate of articles for which we issues an invitation to revise and resubmit. We looked at all such invitations made in 2017 and 2018. A "revise and resubmit" decision is really a rejection with an invitation to try again, and is accompanied by a lot of feedback. If the article is resubmitted it is again sent out form a full review. It turns out the news is rather good! Almost 70% of invitations resulted in resubmissions within one year, and more than 50% of those were eventually accepted. Things could be better in terms of the number of (timely) resubmissions and the quality of the revisions, but the odds of getting an article accepted after an invitation to revise and resubmit are much better than starting over at another high-impact journal. So, send us your revised paper if you have been invited.
