  • Many techniques can be used to show revisions in the manuscript. If the editor or journal specifies a technique, use that one. Otherwise, the author should ensure that whatever technique is used makes it easy for the editor to find the changes. Options for marking changes include the following:
    • Using the Track Changes feature of Microsoft Word
    • Adding highlighting
    • Making changes in a distinctive type style (e.g., underlining, bold, or italics)
    • Adding comments in the margins (go to “Review” and then “New Comment” in Microsoft Word)

  • If you have made numerous changes in the manuscript because the editor requested English-language editing, it is generally not expected that you show all of these changes. Simply note on the first page of the cover letter that the entire manuscript has been edited by an English-language expert as requested.
