    Default Review of a clarification note

    Dear teachers...


    Could you please proofread this clarification note?

    Many thanks!

    CLARIFICATION NOTE
    Dear Reviewers,

    We would like to thank you for your useful comments and suggestions on the structure of our manuscript. However, we are afraid some of your suggestions could not be fully embraced. <Company's name> directs the authors to maintain secrecy about the origin of their products and its derivatives (oily water, turpentine, etc.).

    The manuscript has been resubmitted to your journal.
    We look forward to your positive response.

    This sounds a bit negative. If the next sentence contains all of the things you couldn't change, then you could say something like

    We couldn't make all of the changes requested because <Company's name>'s policy obliges the authors to maintain secrecy about the origin of their products and its derivatives (oily water, turpentine, etc.).

    I have already sent the message! I suppose the Editor is not an Native speaker of English either, so I am hopping he won't get the tone, or in either case, he will excuse my bad English!
