I often see in a CV that certain papers are labelled as ‘communicated’. What does that mean? (Not ‘communicated by’.)

E.g. this document which is a list of papers including entries like:

  1. "On complicated things and related stuff" (with A. B. Coauthor) (communicated).

    Using unknown terms in your CV may be a problem. – GEdgar Sep 14 '18 at 0:51

  • @NateEldredge: This tends to get used in journals such as PNAS. – aeismail Sep 14 '18 at 3:00

    @aeismail: It sounds to me like OP is asking about something different from this, since they write "not 'communicated by'" and have a reference to CVs. But I'm not sure exactly what OP really is asking and I hope they will clarify with a specific example. – Nate Eldredge Sep 14 '18 at 14:02

    In the example posted no journal names are mentioned with the 'communicated' papers, so my guess would be that it essentially means 'submitted'. – Pieter Naaijkens Sep 14 '18 at 14:30

I think these are conference papers.
