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.

  • I have added "all" and "since" to correct the meaning. And changed my first paragraph entirely!

  • Thank you. How can I write the sentence if I want that the sentence starts with "I appreciate all anonymous reviewers of our paper"?
