Losing the Faith
Yesterday evening, I was informed that the journal that had accepted a paper of mine "with revisions" LOST the revisions! Yes, indeed, they lost the resubmitted and revised version of my paper, and no one bothered to tell me about this for FIVE MONTHS. I thought I was going to hear from them any day now about the progress of my paper as it wanders through the interminably long review process. Then I learned through the grapevine that the journal editor stepped down, so I wrote and asked them about the status of my paper and to inform them that I have a new email address. I wondered why no one bothered to tell me, an author whose paper was in revisions, about this change of editor and was astonished to learn that they had no idea what the hell I was talking about! The reason they had no idea what I was talking about is because they LOST my revisions.
