The key to writing a manuscript rejection letter or email, is the same as writing a job rejection toward a candidate: so important it is to be as kind as you can be. You are writing the letter to reject a manuscript, but always keep in mind that you are actual rejecting this manuscript for this journal – you are not rejecting the author, or the author's science in general, or even this manuscript for all time. As we all know often manuscript get rejected because the high volume of submissions and the constraints of space and time that forces us to limit the number of articles that can be published.

By pointing to some of the positives in the letter it will motivate the writer of the manuscript to keep submitting great work. Is the work novel? Is the system promising? Is the discussion thought-provoking? Does the study build appropriately on the author’s previous work, or tackle an obvious gap in our understanding?
