Cover Letter Development

The cover letter is critical for publication.

NJE recommends all our authors to create a great cover letter to the editor-in-chief of your intended journal.

A cover letter gives you a chance to sell your research to this editor by bringing attention to the key points of your research and telling the editor why your document should be published by meeting and/or exceeding the minimum standards of the journal.

We can develop a strong and convincing letter that highlights the strengths of your research based on your document.
