The author is then required to respond to the review results that have been submitted and decided by the Editor. The editor's decision is usually the result of a reviewer's recommendation. In OJS the decisions that the author will accept are as follows:
- Accept Submission, this means that reviewers recommend that the manuscript be accepted without any improvement.
- Revision Required, this means that the author recommends that the manuscript needs to be improved without having to review it again.
- Resubmit for Review, this means that reviewers recommend that the manuscript needs to be reviewed by reviewers. This is because too many revisions were needed.
- Decline Submission, meaning that the reviewer recommended the manuscript was rejected. Usually related to the quality of the script.
To respond to the review results from reviewers/editors, the author goes to the journal website using the previously created account.
