Welcome to the Nextgenediting free template page.

Our mission is to reduce barriers to scholarly publishing and make life as easy as possible for authors. With this in mind, we have produced a set of journal-specific MS Word templates to speed up your manuscript preparation and make sure that you include all necessary content prior to submission. These templates are absolutely free to download and use, except for commercial purposes.

If you do find these templates useful, please share this resource by clicking here to tweet or by connecting with us on Facebook or LinkedIn.

We will be adding to this list all the time in order to expand this resource. If there is a template you desperately need but cannot find, just fill out the request form at the bottom of the page and we will make and upload it as quickly as possible, free of charge. You can also use this form if you have a template to share or if you spot any errors, omissions, or changes that need to be made to our existing templates.

In order to use these templates, just fill out the areas marked with square brackets with your own content. Remember that you will still need to refer to the specific author instructions provided by each journal (links provided) and it is your responsibility to make sure that your final submission meets journal requirements.
