Management of reviewers' comments is not always easy and the skills of experienced editors are helpful. These are the main steps used by ISDB bulletins in rewriting articles:
• before looking at the comments some bulletins suggest that the author or the editor rereads the article and makes his or her own comments on it;
• first consider comments from reviewers that are easy to integrate: style, wording, length of sentences, technical points with simple and clear references, etc.;
• deal with technically complex and/or controversial comments at the end, in some cases through personal contacts with the reviewers;
• in some cases, you may want to re-circulate very controversial articles to a smaller group for final consensus. Some bulletins, such as the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin (UK), do this systematically.
