Your availability to respond to questions. As part of the editing process, we may have questions for you to answer. It is your responsibility to respond to questions promptly. If you do not respond promptly, your manuscript may be delayed and the cost may increase because of additional time required to complete the project. You alone are responsible for delays resulting from a failure to respond to any questions that we send to you. Your reply to our questions should be sent to us by e-mail.
