The time spent on 'minor corrections' may be comparatively more than 'major corrections'.

For example, a professor may give comments that are over 10 pages long, and request 'minor corrections'.
On the other hand, another professor may give comments that are 2 pages long, and request 'major corrections'.

Just follow his suggestions. But you should keep the email which your supervisor recommended the additional corrections.

On the contrary, my supervisor advised me NOT to include additional changes even it can improve the thesis significantly. However, my introduction went through many revisions before the submission...

Quote From Ellebelle:
MeaninginLife, sorry to hear you also went through this. May I ask how things played out?


My supervisor was unhappy to approve my thesis when she did not read in detail… However, I passed. :-)

Quote From Ellebelle:


I also e-mailed someone from the research committee to ask whether I can submit when one supervisor is in effect not supporting the submission and she said that all my forms need to be signed by both supervisors, if he won't consent there is another procedure to follow (which she didn't explain) and said that it will cast a shadow over my work because examiners are informed that a supervisor doesn't support submission. She didn't really explain whether they are informed of the reasons why they do not support submission. I think this will royally p*ss off the supervisor, because if he was okay with submission he would have let me submit it weeks ago - not a good move if I am trying to "preserve" what is left of the relationship, which is why I haven't insisted on it until now. Despite what it may sound like, I do feel awful for putting pressure on him at all during this time - I really do have so much sympathy and if I could, I really would just leave it (which is what I suggested initially!) I don't want to have to pester him.



My situation was similar to yours…

My supervisor did not give any feedback until five days before the 'deadline of submission'.
Worst still, the feedback could worsen the quality of my thesis.

More importantly, I explained that I could not pay the fees, need to work soon etc…

Good luck!

Do you think editors would assign nasty reviewers for their papers in their journals?
I would assign insightful, helpful, and open-mined reviewers for my paper.

Editors usually know their reviewers very well.
If they do not want your paper, they may send it to certain 'group' of reviewers…
Be careful when you write to them. :-)

Perhaps you did not include statistical analysis? Or the paper is still not clear?

Hi Pia,

For my case, my sup did not submit a new file. However, my sup has good relationship with the editor. :)

In one journal, an editor explicitly discourages revising the file after submission. (It is mentioned in the submission process...) Frankly, I can imagine the confusion caused for the admin etc... who does not know much about the manuscript. However, what is most important is the overall quality of your manuscript. Who does not make little mistake like this?

Just tell the editor that you prefer the latest file.
One editor mentioned that the replacement of manuscript could lengthen the review process. Good luck!

Hi Pia,

My sup submitted the wrong version in the initial submission.
However, my sup blamed me for having so 'many' versions. :)

It should be good to clarify with the editor as HazyJane has suggested.
However, it is possible that this will give a negative impression.
So, is it really that critical? Some editors may focus on the introduction, conclusion and references…

My sup accidentally submitted an earlier version of my manuscript, and luckily it was still accepted for publication.

Or try something like "Concepts as Tools in the Experimental Generation of Knowledge in Cognitive Neuropsychology" :). You can download it for free...

Perhaps you should read a paper titled "Developing a Framework for Analyzing Definitions"...
