撤稿

第一次撤稿。和两个美国合作者一起写的一篇论文。经过来回十几次的修改,最后给了一个截止日期(平安夜前两天),发了两次邮件说,如果尚有意见,请在这个截止日期前发来。美国两个作者几天都没有回复,于是在周一投到期刊。结果,美国合作者之一,在几日没有回复信件之后,在投文章之后的半个小时就寄来一封邮件,要求撤稿。

于是来回数次邮件的争论,感觉邮件的文字总数远比论文本身长了。另外搞得假期也心情不佳,最后想想,不就一篇文章嘛。最后只能从“政治”正确性出发,给编辑写信撤稿,以后修改再投,推迟一两个月时间。总有第一次嘛。

信件如下:

Dear Editor ,

We regret to inform that we have to retract the paper submission since one the the co-authors is not happy that we submitted the manuscript without him saying a clear yes. He revised the penultimate version of the paper and we sent it the final version but we did not hear back from him for several days and I assumed that he was happy with this final version. When he realised that the paper was submitted after receiving an email from the journal system he requested to retract the paper and requested to revise the paper again.

I sincerely apologise for this request since the paper is already "Under Review" (shown in the system) but I want to be sure that all the coauthors are happy with the final submission. We will address this situation and hopefully resubmit in late January if you consider that this is still appropriate.

Best regards,

上次说,要在2014年最后一周投出四篇文稿。其中一篇文章实在时间不够,没有写完。最后投了三篇,其中一篇还“撤稿”了。不过也算是一个记录了。

PS,现在和美国合作者一起工作越多,越感觉工作在澳洲、或者欧洲的幸福。
