Abstract / Description of output

In their Comment, Petrovic et al. claim that some of the results previously published by us on the use of the “accessible soliton” model of Snyder et al. are incorrect, whereas the correct ones were previously published by them. In order to restore a proper perspective of the problem, we discuss and clarify some of the existing literature and our own work on the subject, underlining the
importance of the accessible soliton approximation and its recent improvements towards enabling a general understanding of light self-confinement in highly nonlocal media, both quantitatively and qualitatively.
