Chapter 27 offers a checklist for final steps to take prior to submission. This chapter discusses the function of keywords, which are commonly used in journal publications to maximize the likelihood that readers interested in your topic will find your work. The chapter also offers a reminder of the important role critical friends can play at this final stage of preparing a manuscript.

Discussion Questions

  1. Have you gone through the checklist in Table 27.1 to ensure your manuscript is ready for submission?
  2. Have you devised a list of keywords which complement those in the title and abstract, if the genre in which you are writing calls for those?
  3. Have you asked a critical friend to read through for a final check of the readability of the manuscript?
