    You are sending an article to a Journal

    You are sending an article to a Journal tor publication and wish to alert the editor to the fact that the article is based on the results of research which lasted tor nearly ten years, in your covering letter you say:

    A) it seems like ten years now since l began working on this research
    project and have finally got the results that are detailed in this
    article.

    B) During the past decade, I enjoyed collecting the material for this
    article. l hope you think it is worthwhile.

    C) The material is completely reliable: I collected it all myself.

    D) I do have more material, but I think this article is quite long enough.

    E) I would like to point out that this article draws upon almost a
    decade-long research-work.



    I think E, what would you say?

    I think it would be correct to say:
    I would like to point out that this article draws upon a long-decade research.
