Re-Writing

There are various reasons why an existing manuscript must be fundamentally rewritten: new experiments or statistical assessments need to be integrated, quotes from the literature quotations have to be updated, or the length and formatting must be made to meet the requirements of a different publication.

Your manuscript does not have to be redone from the ground up, but normal editing isn’t enough. In such cases, re-writing is an alternative.
