Article rejected because Short Summary isn't accurate

Post by wordgoddess »

Hi everyone,

I'm new to CC. My fourth article was rejected because the "conclusion does not accurately summarize the article."

The Short Summary did, indeed, summarize the article in three sentences. But I went ahead and modified them a little so the editor would be happy.

They replied that I hadn't made any changes.

I replied in a note to the editor that the I had made changes per their request and that the Short Summary is an accurate overview of the article. I asked them to explain how it is inaccurate.

I want to understand so I can fix this and move on.

I'm also concerned because I don't want to be banned for asking questions. Is this likely?

I'm open to suggestions, especially from writers who have been here a while.
