Before Submitting your Manuscript

Prior to submitting your work, it is expected of you to ensure that the document is comprehensive, grammatically accurate, and devoid of any spelling or typographical mistakes.   Several additional crucial aspects:

  • Verify if your manuscript is clearly aligned with the aims and scope of the CRR journal? If the submission does not meet the requirements, the editor has the authority to reject it without undergoing peer review.
  • Have you adhered to all the formatting specifications outlined in the recommendations for preparing your manuscript?
  • Is there any identifiable information in the manuscript that could assist the reviewer in determining your identity? This has the potential to undermine the integrity of the anonymous peer review process. Here are some suggestions:
  • When referencing your own work, it is preferable to use phrasing such as 'past research has demonstrated' rather than 'our previous research has demonstrated'.
  • When citing your own unpublished work, exclude it from the reference list.
  • Perform a thorough examination to verify that there are no instances of author names included in the paper. This encompasses the use of figures or captions.
