Pre-submission checks and services
Getting manuscripts in the right shape
We hear that many authors struggle with manuscript preparation: it’s time-consuming, difficult to predict an editor’s expectations, and journal requirements vary widely. We are currently experimenting with several ways to help authors with their challenges in the pre-submission phase. One of the things we are looking at is an AI-based tool that screens manuscripts on a number of dimensions, such as scope match, completeness, ethical compliance and language quality. The tool will be able to offer authors a set of customized recommendations to increase the chances of success. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the usefulness of this idea!
