Ideally, we prefer to maintain a direct interaction with the author(s) during the revision process. We believe that this close working relationship not only speeds up the revision process, but also provides the author with the opportunity to quickly clarify all doubts, no matter how small, as well as allowing us to develop a better understanding of their needs.
We prefer to work with Microsoft Word, but if you would like to work with other software, please contact us to discuss.
We will generally write to you in English, but please feel free to respond in whichever of these other languages you are most comfortable with: Spanish, Catalan, or Italian.
Time-frames for the review process at TPM
We return revisions within a maximum of 10 working days of receiving them, but will aim to do this as quick as possible, depending on your needs and our availability.
We generally try to respond to requests for clarification of any additional points within 24 hours, but can usually do this within a few hours of receiving them.
If you have a specific deadline, we will do everything we can to help you achieve this (enter the due date – not the submission date! – in the relevant field of the manuscript submission form). In exceptional circumstances, we may accept articles with an urgent deadline within a few days, which may carry an additional fee. If you are planning to send us an article with a short deadline, please try to give advance notice, and/or consider sending us any parts of the manuscript that have been completed.
