By the time you’re ready to submit your paper to a journal, there are a lot of things you’ll need to have checked, understood, and incorporated into your article.
We’ve created this checklist to help you make sure that you don’t miss anything important, both in writing and preparing your paper, and when you’re using a submission system. This can speed up the submission process and avoid potential obstacles in receiving a decision from the journal editor(s).
