The importance of your cover letter for your submission
Make sure to check whether the journal you plan to submit to requires a cover letter. If it doesn’t, it can still be a good idea to include one.
An effective letter is a persuasive tool to tell the journal editor why your research is relevant and why it will be of interest to the journal’s audience.
A well-written cover letter will help you get your research paper to the next stage of the process – peer review. To support you in writing your cover letter, we have pulled together a guide and a sample template.
