Cover letters are entirely optional. You can request reviewers and associate editors in your cover letter, but please keep in mind that we cannot always honor your requests. You are also required to choose two associate editors when you submit your manuscript in Manuscript Central. We try to keep workloads manageable by asking reviewers to review only one manuscript at a time. So if the reviewer or board member you request already has an assignment, he or she will not be available to review your paper.
