Cover letter: A cover letter is your opportunity to explain to an editorial team why they should consider publishing your paper. A cover letter should:
include the title of the paper, a brief summary of the research question investigated and the significance of the results
use standard, searchable terms (keywords) to call attention to your work
state why the paper has been submitted to this particular journal
avoid simply restating the abstract
Many journals require a statement that the paper is not under consideration elsewhere, has not been published before, and is approved by all co-authors. Some journal publishers provide cover letter samples or templates in their guidelines.
