PH1 Paper Resubmitted

Just a quick note to say that I’ve resubmitted the PH1 paper back to the Astrophysical Journal last week. Many thanks to my co-authors for their help on the revised manuscript. The paper has been received by the Journal and sent to the referee (another scientist in the field whose identify usually remains anonymous to the authors) for a second review as part of the peer review process. The changes we’ve made I think make it a stronger paper. In about a month, we should get a response from the referee. Hopefully (fingers crossed) we have sufficiently addressed the referee’s concerns and questions, and the paper will be accepted at that point. When we hear back from the Journal editor and referee, we’ll let you know.
