The article has been accepted. Let’s talk about my submission experience. The process was much slower than someone’s here, but much faster than others’. I submitted it on May 23; it was under review the next day. There were three reviewers. The first reviewer submitted the comments on minor revision on June 6, the second reviewer submitted the comments on major revision on May 31, and the comments were quite many. The third reviewer submitted two comments on June 19. I received the notice of major revision from the editor on June 27, and I was given 10 days. Then, I submitted the revised version on July 5. On the same day, two reviewers submitted their agreement on acceptance to the system. And the other one submitted his agreement on acceptance to the system on July 11. And then there was a long waiting time until I received the notice of acceptance from editor on August 2. And then the fee was paid these days, then the proof. The expense is a bit high. This journal rejects manuscript quickly, sends manuscript for review quickly as well. The efficient is very high. It means a half of the success as long as it is sent for review. And then, it will be 90% successful as long as it is carefully revised in accordance with the expert comments. I hope that the journal will become better and better. Received Date: 23 May 2019; Revised Date: 5 July 2019; Accepted Date: 2 August 2019; Submission to First Decision (Days): 34.

I should have submitted to Sustainability Planning, but I submitted to the wrong subject direction at the beginning. In fact, it took 2 weeks to communicate and reselect submission section. The official review was in mid-November, and then the result came out in one month. Both of the reviewers’ comments were major revision. Because of the first submission, there was no experience. I suffered a heavy blow. I happened to attend a meeting in Washington, so it was suspended for a week. There was no explicit time for the revision in the first review, but my friend said it’s better to submit the revised manuscript in 20 days. It took half a month to revise 45 comments. The first draft was too crude; it’s nice not to be rejected directly. I revised every comment with a very, very good attitude, and then I submitted it. In the second review, the comments were halved to more than 20 in total, but the comments were still major revision. Generally, in this case, if the revision was not good, it would be rejected. I found that many problems were explained clearly but not reflected in the manuscript. The reviews were experts, and the questions asked were all professional. What’s more, the language was referred to several times, so I polished twice. I submitted the manuscript. There were basically no major problems after the third round, just minor revision, I waited for half a month after the submission, the professional editor replied and agreed to accept it. It is an open access journal, so the teacher thinks it is valueless, but I think it’s OK. It is a both SCIE and SSCI journal, so it is not bad, and the reviewers are professional. I wish the journal to be better. Their responsible editors are good; they would actively contact to help solve questions once there are any.

2018.09.24 submitted; 2018.10.01 Received major revision comments, a total of 2 reviewers, 1 major revision, 1 acceptance; 2018.10.12 resubmitted after revision; 2018.10.15 2 reviewers’ comments received; 2018.10.22 accepted; 2018.10.24 Published online. The advice given by the reviewers was very pertinent and helpful. The journal gave 10 days for revision, but I was afraid it would not be enough so I requested another 10 days. Took 7 days to revise the paper and then polished the language. On the 12th, we submitted the revised manuscript in the evening. Reviewers returned their comments on the 15th, then the status became pending editor decision. I was anxious, checking every day, and finally received the editor's acceptance mail on the morning of the 22nd. Then it was the proof step, but you can sign a payment statement first so the paper can be published online. Now you have to send the payment directly to the Swiss account. On the 24th, the paper was published online. Sustainability has high standards for novelty. The assistant editors are all very nice and responsible, whether rejection or sending to peer review is all fast, highly efficient. If the paper is sent out to peer review, and you can carefully revise according to the reviewers’ comments, there is a good chance that the paper will be accepted. I hope the journal is getting better and better. I am very grateful to this journal because now I have met our institute’s requirements for graduation. I also appreciate that this platform makes it possible to find a lot of journal information so conveniently. I hope my second paper will be accepted with much trouble.

Submitted on August 12th, after the select was made on August 12th, the next day, August 13th, edited and wrote a letter asking for the WORD version of the manuscript, because the submission was not suitable, soI feel that editors and external review experts are very serious.On August 15th, I received the revised opinions of two external auditors. One of them basically had no opinions. The other mentioned a lot of very pertinent amendments. I asked for 10 days to renovate. I think it takes 30 days to modify the time. The result is not edited.After agreeing to be so long, I gave 25 days to modify the time. In the end, I used 20 days to modify it. I received a small revision opinion soon. The external review experts were satisfied with the revised comments and raised several minor questions, such as adding English documents.And they are all documents provided by external auditors.Received a notice of acceptance on September 12 and published online on September 18.About 10,000 yuan.The overall feeling is that the external review experts and editors are very serious and the opinions are very pertinent.There is no recommended reviewer, so I feel that the quality of the article is king!

In 2017, I submitted two articles to Sustainability with the same door, and the results were rejected within one day.I sent an article this year, and I feel good about myself because the first draft has been selectd for top journals. Although it has not been accepted, the review comments all consider the article "has potential". For the structural modification of the article, adding a lot of data and supplementing the site research, the Sustainability finallyRecruited.Three reviewers, two overhauls, and one minor repair; the review comments are very professional and are experts in the industry.After the overhaul, the reviewer suggested that Xiao Xiu publish, but the academic editor carefully read and suggested the overhaul article.After finally submitting the manuscript in two months, the article went through two major repairs. After a minor repair, it was acceptd.
