How to write a cover letter to journal when submitting a manuscript?
- In the letter, it is expected that I propose 5 referees. Is this the only reason to write a cover letter?
- Will the cover letter be sent to the referees or only to Journal's staff?
- I feel reluctant to praise my contribution in the cover letter. The article should defend it itself. Is the praising important part of the cover letter? Is it required?
