怎样写cover letter,很多人都知道,cover letter是在初次提交论文稿件的时候,需要一并寄给期刊编辑的一封信。一般来说,期刊编辑是先看cover letter,然后再看具体稿件内容,以决定是否把稿件派发给领域内的相关专家评审(另一种可能就是直接的desk rejection)。那么,该怎样去写cover letter呢?

以我个人的经验,写cover letter,可以分大致三四个段落。第一段,大意就是表明想把什么稿件投到哪个期刊。这里要注意几个小问题。第一,还是信件开头的称呼。如果期刊有公开编辑的信息,可以考虑选择直接致信其中某位编辑,比如“Dear Dr. XX”。如果找不到这方面的信息,写“To whom it may concern”也是可以的。因为在投稿的阶段,作者一般确实无法预知稿件会到哪一位编辑的手里(当然,一旦编辑回复作者,接下来的交流就无疑不要再用Dear Editor或者To who it may concern之类的模糊语了,直接称呼该位编辑Dear Dr. XX即可)。第二,要写明自己所投稿件的标题,最好注上最基本的信息,包括总字数,总图(figure)数和总表(Table)数。第三,要写明所投期刊的全名,比如Journal of Neuroscience,而不是笼统地说“贵刊”。

第二段的任务是大致介绍所投稿件的重要信息。请注意,这个介绍和摘要(abstract)有所不同,不要把文章摘要原封不动地照抄一边。介绍的目的不仅是让期刊编辑对论文稿件的基本内容有所了解,也有一些向编辑“推销”(sell)稿件的意味。在实事求是的基础上,可以用一些比较抓人眼球的用词,以特别强调文章的独特之处,以及其为什么特别值得在该期刊上发表。同时,应该考虑到期刊编辑虽然一般都具有博士学历,但很可能专业和论文的领域并不一致。所以,在介绍的时候,要尽量用通俗易懂的方式介绍一些相关基本概念。而不是在很紧张的写作中,下意识以为无论自己写下什么专业术语,期刊编辑都一定能立刻心领神会。

第三段,按照许多期刊的规定,需要做一些必要的声明。比如,确认本文没有同时投给其它期刊,作者之间是否存在利益冲突(conflict of interest),确认所有实验遵从道德要求(ethical requirements)等等。

最后,要记得留下联系作者(corresponding author)的联系方式(邮件,电话 )。虽然在电子投稿(electronic submission)中,这些信息有专门提交,但是在cover letter里强调一遍总是好的。联系作者的联系方式万一出错,会导致期刊编辑的信件不能及时被收到、延误时机而造成遗憾。

另外,还有一点我想特别强调一下,就是关于信件的语气和礼貌问题。中华民族是礼仪之邦,很多面子上的礼仪特别讲究,用词语气上对对方特别尊敬,对自己呢就一定要透着谦卑。但是英文期刊的编辑绝大多数都是以英语为母语的西方人士,文化传统跟咱们不一样。语气谦卑,咱觉着是客气,可人家会觉得略怪异,说重了几乎仿佛显得投稿人有求于己、动机不纯。请记住作者和期刊编辑之间,是一种平等(peer to peer)的业务往来。必要的尊敬和客气那是当然的,但是太过就真的没有必要(我又想举一遍日本人鞠躬的例子了)。比如说,在最后的一段的信末,适当礼貌地感谢一下编辑即可,不用反复感谢。

总之,cover letter的意义和重要之处在于,它是期刊编辑对稿件的第一印象。写一篇简洁明了、信息明确、又能让期刊编辑快速理解论文特别和优秀之处的cover letter,能方便编辑、节省时间,有利于加快稿件的进一步处理。

---------------------------------

SCI论文投稿Cover Letter的写作和中文投稿有很大的不同,Cover Letter的撰写对于新手而言不知该写什么,而对于老手往往又被忽视,Cover Letter重要吗?可有可无吗?

#1 Cover Letter实用指南(zz)

1、 什么是Cover Letter?
指的是投稿信

2、cover letter的内容主要包括那些?
应该简述所投稿件的核心内容、主要发现和意义,拟投期刊,对稿件处理有无特殊要求等(如“not to review” list)。另外,请附上主要作者的中文姓名、通讯地址、电话、传真和e-mail地址。此外有的杂志要求推荐几位审稿人及其联系方式。以及谁已经阅读过该文(当然是牛人)。
我投的那个杂志是要求说明你论文研究的意义,以及与这个杂志的相关性,另外还有的可能要写明你没有一搞多投等。此外临床实验要求写明符合伦理学要求。

3、 如何写cover letter?
各个杂志的具体要求是不一样的,在杂志的guide for authors一般会有要求。如果没有具体的要求,大家可按照通用要求处理。

Dear Editor,

We would like to submit the enclosed manuscript entitled "GDNF Acutely Modulates Neuronal Excitability and A-type Potassium Channels in Midbrain Dopaminergic Neurons", which we wish to be considered for publication in Nature Neuroscience.

GDNF has long been thought to be a potent neurotrophic factor for the survival of midbrain dopaminergic neurons, which are degenerated in Parkinson’s disease. In this paper, we report an unexpected, acute effect of GDNF on A-type potassium channels, leading to a potentiation of neuronal excitability, in the dopaminergic neurons in culture as well as in adult brain slices. Further, we show that GDNF regulates the K+ channels through a mechanism that involves activation of MAP kinase. Thus, this study has revealed, for the first time, an acute modulation of ion channels by GDNF. Our findings challenge the classic view of GDNF as a long-term survival factor for midbrain dopaminergic neurons, and suggest that the normal function of GDNF is to regulate neuronal excitability, and consequently dopamine release. These results may also have implications in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

Due to a direct competition and conflict of interest, we request that Drs. XXX of Harvard Univ., and YY of Yale Univ. not be considered as reviewers. With thanks for your consideration, I am

Sincerely yours,

Dear Sirs,
I am sending herewith a copy of the manuscript, which I would like to submit to SOLA, the Electronic Journal of the Meteorological Society of Japan.
The paper is entitled:
Energy Spectrum Proportional to the Squared Phase Speed of
Rossby Modes in the General Circulation of the Atmosphere
by H. L. Tanaka, Yasushi Watarai, and Takahiro Kanda.
Copy of the Abstract:
In this study, energy spectrum of the large-scale atmospheric motions is examined in the framework of the 3D normal mode decomposition. The horizontal scale of disturbance is measured by the phase speed of a Rossby mode c. According to the analysis result for the barotropic component of the atmosphere, we obtain a characteristic energy spectrum with distinct slopes for the turbulence and wave regimes separated by the spherical Rhines speed. In order to explain the observational finding that the energy spectrum is proportional to c^2, we put forward a hypothesis based on the criterion of Rossby wave breaking such that the local meridional gradient of potential vorticity becomes negative, dq/dy < 0, somewhere in the domain. With a constant m describing a total mass of the atmosphere for unit area, we have shown that the barotropic energy spectrum of the general circulation E can be represented as E=mc^2.
