Are you doing what you should do?
I submitted our latest work entitled “XX" (XX) to the journal in 02 Nov, 2021. And the status of ‘With Editor’ has been lasted for 11 weeks.
I am not sure if the editor is working! Does the editor know that you are making troubles for us?
Don’t hold down a job without doing a stroke of work, please. If you just can't get things done, and this has been going on for a long time, then it's time to self-introspect and find out what this is all about.
Dear Dr. XX,
Sorry for my late answer, but I was out of office for a while due to health issues.
Your manuscript is under review and I will get back to you once we receive the necessary number of reports.
Thank you once again for choosing XX and for your patience and understanding.
