Abstract:
This paper discusses common errors emanating from authors submitting manuscripts or papers for publication in peer refereed Library and Information journals. It is hoped that this paper will provide established, novice and potential scholarly journal authorâ s with valuable information enabling the improvement of their manuscripts before submission for publication. The paper primarily uses the authorâ s experience as editor-in-chief of a peer refereed accredited LIS journal, among other experiences (e.g author, reviewer etc), as well as 85 peer reviewer reports on submitted manuscripts to the South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science, to analyze and discuss common errors made by authors on submitted manuscripts for publication, and the challenges facing these authors.
