2009/2010 Editorial Series on Submitting Manuscripts

In this series of editorials, Dennis Drotar, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology (JPP), shares some observations and explains what he would like to see in submitted manuscripts, based on his experience over the last two years as incoming editor of the journal, previous experience in editing and providing reviews, and feedback from the Journal’s associate editors.

We hope that this will be useful to authors as well as reviewers in evaluating the quality of manuscripts.
