If at First You Don't Succeed: Review Procedures for Revised and Resubmitted Manuscripts

Abstract

Scholarly manuscripts typically are revised many times prior to publication. Revision has become such an expected part of the manuscript review process that different review procedures have been implemented to deal with the revised manuscript. This article compares analyses of the peer review and editorial decision-making process for first-submission manuscripts and for revised and resubmitted manuscripts to the American Sociological Review (ASR) between 1977 and 1981. For each group of manuscripts we estimate a two-stage path model. These models predict 54 percent of the variance for first submission manuscripts and 80 percent for resubmitted manuscripts. Because the review processes for "R & R" manuscripts are different, we propose three publication strategies for authors considering resubmission.
