Re: (off-topic) self-plagiarism

Dear All:
One point apparently missed in the exchange to this point is that many societies require that the submission cover letter include a statement that the material in the submission has not been published elsewhere. If such a statement is required, but was missing in the cover letter, the journal editor should have requested the statement before sending the manuscript to reviewers. If the author made the statement, then not only is there is the added ethical violation of having submitted the manuscript under false pretenses, opening up a range of possible further actions.
