How to Write a Cover Letter for Journal Article Submission

Many journals, like JCSHESA, require authors to submit a cover letter alongside their submission detailing the manuscripts’ key points and alignment with the journal. This helps editors get a feel for the manuscript. Writing a persuasive cover letter is particularly important because it invites the editor to understand why your work is important and a good fit for their journal. Essentially, a cover letter provides editors a first impression of your manuscript.
