If you are submitting a revision, feel free to email the Journal a formatted version of your cover letter, though you must still also send a text version of your cover letter through the portal as you're uploading your revision.
Please also include the type of article you are submitting – a brief report (3,000 to 5,000 words in length including references, excluding abstract and footnotes), comment, or regular article.
