The Cover Letter is the first contact of an Editor with your paper. Succinctly, your Cover Letter should impact the Editor in order to convince him/her that your research output is valuable and should be published.
A good Cover Letter increases the success of a paper by reducing the probability of Rejection at the initial evaluation stage.
