[xmca] Re: Mind, Culture, and Activity: An International Journal - Decision on Manuscript ID MCA-09-53

Mike -- attached is the one I had to ccorrect and accept. I made 4 corrections which otherwise would have effected the meaning. However I did not want to mess with the rest of the text because of the the english corrections Tamara already made. The attached file can be compared to the one I mailed you yesterday (the final). I conclude, for example, that footnotes are gone, a paragraph in the conclusion is deleted, references have been removed, words have been replaced (changes of english which I can't judge the correctness of).

But, if an editor has worked with it I'll accept the changes though I have to admit that I started to wonder whether the editor is a native English speaker or not...? Nothing more I can do, I just hope everything is ok.

Michael is away for 6 weeks, but presumably online. i do not know
what transformations happened between which step and which step. Tammy is not longer ucsd worker, Camille is. i will cc her and await news on what/how/ to proceed.

Is there anything in what the current version you have before you that you object to, monica?

I would be pleased if you could make sure that it is the correct version that has been worked on by someone at the publisher (attached in this mail). Why are major parts removed and quite a lot of words changed since Tamara, a native english speaker and grad student in the USCD communication department, worked thoroughly with it?

Again, my major concern is that the final and correct version has been mixed up with an old version...

Looking forward to seeing the paper in print ;-)

Dear Monica Nilsson:


It is a pleasure to accept your manuscript entitled "Creative Pedagogy of Play – The Work of Gunilla Lindqvist" in its current form for publication in the Mind, Culture, and Activity: An International Journal.

Final revised manuscripts are edited to improve the effectiveness of communication between author and readers. The most important goals are to improve sentence structure and to eliminate ambiguities. This pertains in particular to excessive and inappropriate use of references, footnoting, and parenthetical notes. When editing is extensive, with consequent danger of altered meaning, papers are returned by the journal Editor to the author for correction and approval before type is set.

Thank you for your fine contribution. On behalf of the Editors of the Mind, Culture, and Activity: An International Journal, we look forward to your continued contributions to the Journal.
