Hi all experienced authors (well, those with more experience than me)
I've had my first paper back from the editor with 3 lots of comments and suggestions for changes, which are all do-able within a relatively short timeframe (if I dedicate a few weeks to it). They've said that they feel the paper can make a valuable contribution.
Does this mean that if I address all their points thoroughly, it'll be accepted for publication?!
Cheers

Only three suggestions? I'd say that's a definite yes! Many congratulations. especially for your 1st paper. I think my 1st paper had about 30 corrections, and it still got accepted in the end. Well done!

Oh no, that was slightly ambiguous... three sets of comments from three separate reviewers. Probably 20 or more in total! But there is still hope? Phew!

Yes - typically if you address all the reviewers' comments, your paper will be accepted. There are always exceptions, though.
