I have been writing up part of my masters project for publication and I recently submitted the paper to a journal. When I submitted the paper, there had been a mix up and the editor didn't actually receive my submission.
Anyways, once I got that sorted, the editor agreed to try and process the paper and send it to reviewers asap, and I soon received confirmation that it was under review and would take approx 8 weeks for a decision. Within a few weeks I received an email from that editor stating that the journal's new publishers are conducting a review into the content of the journal and have asked for all submissions to be put on hold with no indication of how long the review will take. I haven't heard anything since.
I was just wondering if anyone can advise me on what to do in this situation please? I understand that I can wait, but it's already been a while and I'd obviously like to get things moving with this paper.
