Cover Letter Samples for Your Scientific Manuscript

When you send your paper to a scientific journal for publication, you also have to send a cover letter along with the manuscript. Even though this letter probably won’t be the deciding factor to whether your article should be published or not, it might be a key element to decide whether it should be reviewed altogether.

I compiled here some examples of cover letters you can use as templates to prepare your own letter.

The pack consists of two awesome templates and two real-life examples and costs only 3€. You can use one of the templates to send the manuscript and another one to send your answer to the reviewers.

Click on the buy now button to download the cover letter templates pack!

If you have doubts or need help with your letter, do not hesitate to contact us! You can also share some of your own tips in the comments below.

Good luck with your paper!!

    Hi Sophie, You have helped yet another first timer!
    I notice there are lines such as ‘All co-authors have seen and ….’ and ‘We certify that this publication is not being ….’ seem almost like disclaimers
    Is this more or less a ‘standard’ preamble?

  • This is a spam

    There is only one letter in the template, not worth the money. I am in a hurry to submit a revision, so I paid it. But really, this is just a spam. If you have time, search for the web or ask your col ledges for examples.
