Possible decisions include: 

Accept: Your submission has been accepted as is. 

Revisions Required: Your submission requires minor changes and will be accepted once those have been completed. 

Resubmit for Review: Your submission needs significant revision. A new file must be submitted and additional reviews will be initiated.
