Did You Know? Pre-submission inquiry in Editorial Manager
Did you know that Editorial Manager offers the flexibility to configure a ‘Pre-submission inquiry?’ This ‘initial query’ article type allows authors to initiate a preliminary dialogue about an article’s suitability for the journal.
These inquiries can potentially save both authors and editors time. If approved, the full submission process can automatically proceed, carrying forward all appropriate metadata from the preliminary inquiry. If not approved, the author hasn’t wasted time completing all steps necessary for a full submission, and remains free to submit the paper to other more appropriate publications.
