The biggest thing for authors to remember [when submitting a manuscript] is this is a presentation of your work. It should be the best presentation; it should not have errors and it should be according to guidelines. That’s what tells me you really want to be published in the journal and it shows you are careful and detailed in your work—a big flag for me.
