Last year my paper got accepted in a Mathematics journal. This year the online first version of the article came out. I put the online version on research gate and a lot of people read the article. Then a fellow reader pointed out a big mistake in last part of the paper. I mailed and informed the journal regarding the error.I told them the error does not seem to be fixable at the moment and requested them if they could update the paper by removing the erroneous part. After a week I noticed that the journal has taken down the online first version from their website. But till now I haven’t received a reply to my mail. It has been a month now.
Can anyone tell what I should do now? I mailed the journal secretary yesterday, but no response.
I should also mention that I had submitted the copyright transfer form , after proof reading i.e Just before the online first version came out. Also the journal is a decent one with .50 MCQ on mathscinet.
Well I expect a response from them because then I would know what their plan is with my paper, so that without loosing time I can publish it somewhere else if required.
