This article 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 authors with valuable information enabling the improvement of their manuscripts before submission for publication. The paper primarily uses the author's experience as editor-in-chief of a peer refereed accredited LIS journal, among other related experiences, as well as 85 peer reviewer reports on submitted manuscripts to South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science, to analyse and discuss common errors made by authors on submitted manuscripts for publication, and the challenges facing these authors.
