Hi all

I submitted a revised manuscript (only a few changes requested) to a journal, and have been signing in periodically to see what the status is. It has changed today from "Awaiting Reviewer Scores" to "Awaiting recommendation". Any idea what this means?

Cheers

Ooh, after googling I've found out that it means it is back with the editor for a final decision. I guess it could go either way now.

Yes, you are right.
The manuscript is about to come back with a final decision.

Thanks Leila. Anyone know if awaiting a decision on a revised paper should be quicker than the decision on the original submission? It is taking ages and they didn't even ask for that many changes!

Not necessarily, depends how much work the editor/AE has on.
