Writing Cover Letters and Responses to Reviewers

- Writing Cover Letters and Responses to Reviewers -
The submission process is not complete without a cover letter. A good cover letter expedites the review process by accurately describing the goals and value of your research, your contact information, and your publication preferences. Another aspect of the submission process—responding to reviewer comments— requires attention to detail and, often, tact. We will discuss how to format your responses and respond to difficult, mistaken, and unfair reviewer comments.
*This seminar will be recorded, and the video will be available on the WebClass.
