Failure to do so will cause a delay in the review of your revision and may result in return of the revision to you, without review, for proper preparation. Revisions received more than 2 months after requested may be sent for another review cycle, at the Editor's discretion. If a revision is not received within 6 months after requested, your file may be closed.
