Download our Free Journal Editor Cover Letter Template
The cover letter is one of the most important documents that you submit along with your manuscript. Journal editors go through scores of manuscripts each week, and have only a few minutes to decide whether a manuscript needs further consideration, i.e. detailed evaluation and peer review. The cover letter plays an important role in this decision-making process and must catch the attention of the journal editor.
To help authors, we created this free journal editor cover letter template that outlines the structure of a cover letter. It contains comments on the type of information that is generally expected. This free template can be used for the majority of journals, although some journals might require additional information as part of the cover letter. Please refer to your target journal’s website to check for any specific requirements.
