Abstract
This article aims to help potential authors of geomorphological articles
to get their work published. It identifies the basic characteristics of
a good manuscript in geomorphology in terms of: (a) originality and
significance; and (b) rigour. It uses these characteristics to define
how an author should structure a conventional' manuscript in
geomorphology by successfully identifying and justifying the motivation
for the research; clearly and fully explaining the methods used; and
presenting and discussing the results obtained. The article considers
the importance of published literature in sustaining all elements of a
manuscript in geomorphology. It also presents the natural symmetry that
should exist between parts of a manuscript. These practical elements
regarding the form and content of a manuscript are then developed
through: (a) flagging some of the common mistakes made by authors
drawing upon my experience as Managing Editor of the journal Earth
Surface Processes and Landforms; (b) discussing the ethical and legal
issues, including plagiarism, that relate to manuscript submission; (c)
exploring the review process from the perspective of an author,
including guidance on how best to respond to review comments in revising
a manuscript. Copyright (c) 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
