Initial submissions

To give your manuscript the best chance of publication, ensure that you have followed the submission guidelines carefully.

Once you have successfully formatted your paper, you are ready to submit via the online system.

Revised submissions

If you have been invited to revise your paper, please use the link provided in the decision letter to resubmit. When resubmitting, in addition to your cover letter and revised manuscript files, you should include a point-by-point response to the reviewers’ comments (rebuttal letter). This is an important part of your revised manuscript submission, and our guide to writing a response to the reviewers’ comments provides advice for maximising its effectiveness.
