Journal Submission Package

It may seem very unfair that breaking your neck the year round to work on your research was not sufficient to get you successfully published. Indeed, journal submission can be a nightmare, what with the numerous do’s and don’ts and fine prints that are exhaustive to say the least. Often, authors face a nervous breakdown due to multiple revisions required and the reviewer’s note on “please follow the instructions” carefully. Well, we have to agree. It can be daunting. But, fret now! INCI Tech has (over several years) championed the art of journal submission. We take your draft like paper and transform it into a publication-ready paper. Just for researchers like you, INCI Tech came up with a brilliant idea of a one-stop solution to your paper journal submission.

STEP 3: FORMATTING

Most publishers or journals have a house style or follow a specific style manual to ensure a uniform format across all volumes and issues. These requirements are specific to the formatting of texts, illustrations (figures, pictures, tables, pictures, graphs, etc.), references, placement of sections and order of headings, among others. This is often the final step before publishing or the first when using a template.

STEP 4: COVER LETTER ASSISTANCE

Your manuscript may be an impressive accomplishment, but you need a query-cum-sales pitch letter along with it. The cover letter should impress and convince the editor by focusing on readers’ benefit and by implying significance in terms of quality of contribution. We know the tone, approach and logic that tick a cover letter, taking you miles ahead. Exploit our expertise for success.
