Dear Gordana, I received your invitation letters (dated Nov. 5 and Nov. 1). However, I think, I will not be able to accept your kind offer.
For the following reason: After the Vienna 2015 Summit, I was invited (by MDPI Information journal) to submit an extended version of my conference paper to the journals Special Issue: <http://www.mdpi.com/journal/information/special_issues/ISIS-2015> Selected Papers from the ISIS Summit Vienna 2015. A few days after I have submitted my paper, I was informed that your manuscript has been declined for publication in Information. No further explanation or editorial comments were provided (Guest Editors of the Issue were M. Burgin and W. Hofkirchner). As it follows from your invitation letter, M. Burgin will again be the Chief Editor for all volumes of the Gothenburg Summit selected papers. As you understand, I cannot allow myself to be subjected again to M. Burgins editorial customs. Therefore, I am sorry but I must turn down your kind proposal. My publication ambitions are pretty well satisfied with the publication in the MDPI Proceedings, 2017, Vol. 1, Issue 3, and the attention the two of my papers have achieved among the readers: Wu Kuns paper 148 reads / 56 downloads, Burgins paper 216 reads / 67 downloads. (Not so bad, as you see). I appreciate your efforts in Gothenburg Summit organization. Best regards, Emanuel. ---------------------------------------------------------------- From: Gordana Dodig Crnkovic [mailto:gordana.dodig-crnko...@chalmers.se] Sent: Wednesday, November 01, 2017 12:17 PM To: Emanuel Diamant Cc: markburgin Subject: INVITATION TO WORLD SCIENTIFIC VOLUME ON THE STUDY OF INFORMATION Dear Emanuel, As a result of Gothenburg meeting of the International Society for the study of information, Mark Burgin and I are preparing two volumes with World Scientific. We would be very happy if you could contribute to the volume addressing Philosophy and Methodology of Information. We would expected a contribution on the topic you presented on the summit. This is the first volume of two, the second one being dedicated to Theoretical Information Studies. The books aim to chart the new interconnected territory and thus to set the foundation for the emerging research field of The study of information, presenting within the same context contemporary research in theoretical, philosophical and methodological aspects of information, with the goal of enabling new insights coming from cross-fertilization among the research fields. The structure of the books is given in the end of this message. The schedule for the book project is defined by the following deadlines: Expression of intention to contribute: November 15, 2017 Paper submission: January 15, 2018 Notification of acceptance/rejection: February 15, 2018 Submission of the final version of the paper: March 1, 2018. In the expression of intention to contribute, please send us your tentative: 1. Title 2. Abstract (200-500 words) and 3. Length of the proposed paper. The typical length of a paper is 15 pages. However, both shorter and longer papers could be accepted where appropriate. The final formatting of all papers will be in Word or LaTeX. As usual, it is responsibility of the author to make certain that the content of the contribution is significantly new and not submitted for publication in any other venue - journal, conference, book or other.
