Ask the Editor
What is your top tip for authors submitting to the Macro Journals? Use the letter to the editor. This is your chance to highlight the most important findings, how they compare to the state of the art, and how they will drive the field forward. You can advertise your manuscript directly to the editor. Don’t copy in your abstract, I will read that anyway.
What do you look forward to in the coming year for macromolecular science? I am looking forward to how the 2016 Chemistry Nobel Prize on molecular machines will drive the research in this field. Where molecular machines can perform small tasks, macromolecular machines take this concept to a whole new level, which we will highlight in an upcoming Special Issue in Macromolecular Rapid Communications.
What I look for first in a publication is… The abstract and figures. The main motivation and findings should be clear from just these two.
