HowTo: resubmit!

Though I have not resubmitted a rejected paper to another journal (not that mine haven’t been rejected; we just chose to rewrite the manuscript and submit them to the same journal), sometimes one may have to; and, FSP has some suggestions on how to go about doing it:

Executive summary: Don’t send reviews and other information about rejected manuscripts along with your resubmission if you really don’t want to, but realize that sending this information might actually help your resubmission, not harm it, especially if you provide a calm and sincere explanation of the relationship of submission #1 to submission #2.

Along the way, FSP also tells something which, young researchers should be aware of:

There is no shame in revealing that the manuscript has previously been rejected.

Take a look!
