Peer review is an important part of the scientific writing process. Before a manuscript is published, authors and reviewers are working as a team to craft the best possible manuscript to share with the scientific community. Most of the time, a manuscript needs to be revised at least once before it is ready for publication. Once an author has addressed reviewer comments and is ready to resubmit the manuscript for further review, a letter for the revised manuscript is sent to the editors with the author’s response to all reviewer comments. This is often referred to as the rebuttal letter.
The attached article, by Kakoli Majumder, provides detailed information on crafting an effective rebuttal letter.
