Different journals tend to have different requirements regarding manuscript formatting. This is usually the last step before submission, but it can take up a large amount of time. Strict adherence to the journal guidelines makes a favorable first impression and reduces the likelihood that a journal will immediately reject a paper without first reading the text.
Do you experience any of the following challenges during formatting?
- The journal guidelines include a large number of formatting specifications. Trying to carefully tailor your text and references to these specifications can be frustrating and time-consuming.
- After submitting the manuscript, it is returned by the journal saying that it does not meet their requirements regarding citation style, third level headings, italics, or other small matters not immediately relevant to your content.
- A paper has been formatted for a specific journal, but submitting to another journal would require extensive changes in format.
The process of formatting can be tedious, taking up a large amount of researchers’ time and energy. To address this, LetPub launched its Manuscript Formatting Service, which tailors your manuscript to a specific target journal, helping your manuscript progress in the journal review process.
We format your manuscript using the LetPub professional formatting checklist to make sure your paper meets journal requirements. You will receive the following:
- Cover letter template* with all key content
- Complete and formal manuscript, including the following:
a. Structure arrangement (e.g. title page, highlights, abstract, introduction, methods, results, etc.) and integrity review
b. Paragraph formatting (e.g. font size, line spacing, indentation, multi-level headings, bold and italic formatting, etc.), blank lines, and pagination (e.g. each table should be presented on a separate page)
c. Reference formatting modification and review
*This service does not cover word reduction, content supplementation, grammar and spelling inspection, figure formatting, or cover letter editing. Choose LetPub’s Language Editing or Figure Formatting Service packages for these related services.
