Submitting a Revised Document
These author guidelines contain information to assist the user in preparing and submitting the revised versions of technical and non-technical works that are in process. Authors can submit revised versions in the following circumstances:
Initial work has been submitted but not yet assigned to an Associate Editor (and begun the review process).
Recommendation has been made for the work to be revised (review process completed).
Work has been accepted for publication in an ASME journal (and has not yet begun production).
Authors will receive notification of recommendation and/or acceptance via e-mail. They can submit revised materials when so noted in the Options section of the Author Status Page.
A revision of an author’s work should be just that, so authors are strongly advised to ensure that all suggested changes and mandatory revisions are incorporated in their document prior to its submittal to the site. For information on writing and styling, or for additional details, please refer to the Guidelines for Initial Journal Submission.
If an author realizes some error in the initial submittal of the work, a revised version may be submitted. Authors will see this as an available Option on the Author Status Page. Please note that the new version will overwrite the existing version. However, authors may only do this until the work has been assigned to an Associate Editor for review. After this, that is when the review of the work has begun, authors may not submit a revised version of the work until the Associate Editor assigned has issued a recommendation.
If the review and the recommendation by an Associate Editor or the Editor requests the submittal of a revised paper, authors must ensure they follow the recommendations and include the suggested or required revisions in a new version of their work. Authors may then submit this revised work, as well as any rebuttal. The rebuttal can be uploaded as a separate PDF file or inserted in the Comments section of the submittal screen.
If an author realizes some error in the final submittal of the work, a revised version of the text portion or individual graphics may be submitted. Authors will see this as an available Option on the Author Status Page. Please note that the new version will overwrite the existing version.
To update your final paper (text), choose the link, “Resubmit” under the “Options” box. Browse for your updated paper, and choose “Upload File”. Any new files submitted will overwrite those uploaded previously.
To update graphics files, choose the link, “Resubmit” under the “Options” box. Browse for your graphics files and choose “Upload File”. Any new files submitted will overwrite those uploaded previously. If you wish to delete a graphic, choose the “Remove” link.
