Include a cover letter with the document

Write and edit this letter carefully - it forms an editor's first impression of you and your work. Be certain to spell the editor's name correctly. Assure that this information is current and correct. Sending a submission to the wrong person can delay it considerably!

In the letter, name the journal and say something nice (but not effusive) about why it is the appropriate place to publish this particular paper. State the title of your document. Identify yourself as corresponding author, and include your full current postal and email addresses and your phone number. Mention any additional information that may facilitate editorial processing, such as the type of article (short communication, research article, case study, etc.). It is quite appropriate to offer suggestions for potential non-local reviewers.
