Get familiar with the journal’s instructions for authors
Speed up your submission, make sure you understand the journal’s individual requirements
The instructions for authors (IFAs) are an individual set of requirements for a journal. This helps guide potential authors to construct their article in the correct way, and prepare it for submission.
The IFAs tell you exactly what the journal’s editorial board will expect to see. It also includes details of specific processes to follow to make sure there are no problems during production, should your article be accepted.
Familiarizing yourself with your target journal’s instructions for authors is an important part of writing your paper and preparing it for submission.
