Recently I submitted a paper in a journal then after a few days I got following comments:

Your submission of the manuscript has been unsubmitted. This is because your "Author's Novelty File" was not detailed enough. In order to proceed, please briefly describe, in a few lines, the new contributions of your paper to the field. Do not repeat for this purpose the content of your abstract. Instead, provide a brief itemized list of these contributions in a separate file.

I don't understand what I have to write now. What he is asking for? I need help with this.

Thanks for giving me time.

I recently submitted a paper to IJNME. In the 'File Upload' section, it is stated the following:

"Author's Novelty File" - All Authors are now required to supply an additional file. Please briefly describe, in a bullet pointed list, the new contributions of your paper to the field. Do not repeat for this purpose the content of your abstract. Instead, provide a brief itemized list of these contributions in a separate file. 

I hope it helps.
