Starting with the April 15 deadline, there will be a brief period for author response within the ARR review cycle.
- for 5 days after the deadline for regular reviews, authors can make comments on the reviews, using the discussion forum within OpenReview (as is done, for example, with ICLR)
- the comments should be limited to clear factual errors or serious misunderstandings
- reviewers may respond to authors’ comments or update their reviews, but are not obligated to do so
- action editors will take these comments into account when writing their metareview
This is made possible by the slightly longer cycle announced in the previous blog post.
The primary route for responding to reviews will remain revise and resubmit. In-cycle responses to reviews should not include, for example, new experimental results or data analyses requested by reviewers.
