Description

Before submitting your manuscript to a journal, you have to take care of many things – right from checking the IMRAD structure to addressing every little submission requirement. If you want journal editors to consider your paper, you must ensure that you deliver a great manuscript that matches the editor’s expectations and gives you the highest chances of acceptance.

In this program, you will learn how to eliminate the most common errors that lead to manuscript rejection by subjecting your paper to several reviews with different objectives. You will also know the critical aspects you should focus on, such as the language, presentation, and formatting. This course, with detailed explanations, multiple evaluations to test your learning, and curated content based on 18+ years of editorial expertise, has all you need to create a publishing-worthy paper!
