I have a paper accepted by a journal. Editors ask me to upload my source tex file.

Editors told me the tex is corrupted and cannot be opened after my twice upload, but the tex file works properly on my computer and I even zip it before upload to avoid corrupted.

I am going to crazy.........pls give me a hint.

Can't you ask them what error they are getting if everything works fine on your end? Have you tried re-saving the file under a new name and see if that works for them? How are they trying to open the file? What text editor are they using? What encoding did you use compared with which one they expect? (In my experience [in the humanities], journal editors are usually not TeX- or tech-savvy at all....) –  jon Sep 3 '13 at 3:16
I had that happen to me today when I tried to open a TeX file with MS Word to use their spell checker. –  John Kormylo Sep 3 '13 at 3:18
