Cover Letter Writing

With a well written cover letter, you have a 99.9% chance of getting your manuscript passed for review.

Your cover letter is your first point of contact with the Journal editor. A poorly written cover letter can deny you review. Our goal is to ensure your research work is accepted for review at first glance even without reading the full manuscript.

What is a Cover Letter?

A cover letter is a document that accompanies your manuscript to be submitted to an academic journal. It is a letter of introduction that highlights what your research work is about. A cover letter should be specific to your research work and its subject area. A cover letter that works for journals in Humanities does not necessarily work for Medicine, vice-versa.

Why is a Cover Letter so important?

A cover letter tells the target journal editor the type of research you have done, and exactly what makes your research worth reviewing. Your cover letter is what sells your research work to the editor at first glance. An editor does not have to read your full manuscript to accept it for review.
