Dear Sarah and dear all,

many thanks for that. To be honest, both Cathy and I sent to Mr. Russell Adams rectified versions of the TOC in December, specifying that we were the authors of the Introduction and that the three of us were the editors of the whole issue. Thus, if something went wrong, as you imply, this happened on your side. It is not the case that "there was no way for [you] to possibly know that there were three guest editors".

I do not want to complain, just to help you at Equinox organising your work better in the future.

Best wishes,

elisa freschi

Have just edited this.

Apologies, but there was no way for me to possibly know that there were three guest editors for this issue because the editorial is stated as only written by Cathy and Elisa, and this is what the table of contents is based on.

It has now been rectified. I don't work on weekends and I have been off until today, hence the delay.

Best wishes,

Dear Cathy,
the error has been rectified in the actual journal but  you are right that its contents page on the journal website ( still has this error!   It does indeed need correcting.

Dear Elisa and Peter (copied to Jowita, and to Sarah Hussell),

I am rather upset that the online TOC on this link still appears to omit Jowita's name at the top.  In other words, it should of course read:

Guest edited by Cathy Cantwell, Elisa Freschi and Jowita Kramer

I was not happy to see that this error had been made when it was first announced and I wrote immediately to Sarah Hussell, copying you all in.  You will see that there are two emails I wrote to her on Saturday.  Yet I have received no response, and it appears that the error has not been rectified.
