I'd like to submit an article for peer-review but the paper needs a lot of editing and re-formatting to tailor it for a specific journal (it's based on an essay I wrote several years ago). Before I do all of this, is it normal/desirable to email the journal editor with a very short (2-3 sentences max) description of the article and ask whether they'd be interested in the topic? I haven't had any prior contact with the editor. This is for a humanities subject.
At a seminar I went to on getting papers published, the presenter suggested emailing the editor with a brief summary as reasonable and sensible, particularly so if the article you propose is slightly outside the normal scope of the journal but I think he deemed it an acceptable thing to do in general.
