  How much time do I need to get a paper into the Review section?

+ 1 like - 0 dislike

I made a submission request about four days ago, with no reaction so far. How long does it take to fulfill my request and why?

Couldn't you submit using the system for yourself?

No, I couldn't, that is why I've made a submission request.

I'm helping to submit the paper, but I encountered a weird error message in the "list of authors" row(I'm using the "from other source" submission since it's not from arxiv):

List of authors is too long (18 chars). Max length is 16'000 characters

@dimension10 @polarkernel could you have a look at this problem?

I had the same message and I could not finish the submission.

@JiaYiyang ate you sure it's 16'000 characters, and not 16000 or 16,000?

@polarkernel maybe this was misspelled in the code?

@dimension10 yes I'm sure.

It was a typing error, should work now. Sorry!
