I would like to appreciate all reviewers of our paper. We submitted our paper two times and I would point to reviewers of both submissions and revise. If I say from the first submission does it have the mentioned meaning?

I appreciate all reviewers of our paper from the first submission for their time.


No, that would not be correctly understood by most people, since it over-emphasises 'first'.

I think I would have written it as "I appreciate the time of all those who have reviewed our paper since its first submission."

  • I would leave out the apostrophe in "its".

  • I don't mean only reviewers of first submission. I mean reviewers of both submissions.
