Do you have any checklist that I can follow before I submit

Good job drafting your manuscript! Before you submit your manuscript to a journal, there are a few things that you should remember. You should firstly proofread your manuscript at least 2–3 times to look for any errors that might have been missed before. In addition, it is a good idea to request your peers or supervisor to review your manuscript and offer feedback. You should also check for any conflicts of interest or copyright permissions for previously published data/images. You would also need to prepare an effective cover letter addressed to the journal editor to highlight the significance of your research.
