附信

科研人员们费尽心思地想在期刊上获得发表空间以及获得编辑们的青睐。良好的附信 (cover letter) 会帮助你更好地向期刊编辑们“推销”你的论文。像下面这样向期刊编辑简单地把论文一发了事是不可取的。

Dear Editor-in-Chief,

I am sending you our manuscript entitled "Large Scale Analysis of Cell Cycle Regulators in bladder cancer" by Researcher et al. We would like to have the manuscript considered for publication in Pathobiology.

Please let me know of your decision at your earliest convenience.

With my best regards,

Sincerely yours,

A Researcher, PhD

事实上,你应查阅该刊《投稿指南》上是否对附信有特殊要求(如,披露、声明、潜在的审稿人)。然后再向编辑写信说明为什么你的论文值得刊登。

常用句式如下:

  • Please find enclosed our manuscript, “[稿件标题]” by [第一作者姓名] et al., which we would like to submit for publication as a [论文类型] in [刊名].
  • To our knowledge, this is the first report showing…
  • We believe our findings would appeal to the readership of [journal name].
  • Please address all correspondence to:
  • We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

所有的附信应包含以下句子:

  • We confirm that this manuscript has not been published elsewhere and is not under consideration by another journal.
  • All authors have approved the manuscript and agree with its submission to [插入目标期刊的刊名]..
