Someone from where I work took a piece of work I wrote and published it in their name without informing me. I gave them almost a year's time to remove that paper. They did not. Now I complained to the journal and forwarded the proof (Proof with a time stamp showing that this was written earlier than the paper was submitted). They further wanted to confirm with the professor in charge. Since then I did not hear from the journal.
I wrote them to proceed further if they do not get any response from the witnesses. Now I have not received any response from them for 2 months. Could you suggest further what to do to make them act on it?
I have provided email conversations between me and the professor to the journal. It clearly shows that I wrote the stuff before their submission. Email has time and date stamp. Journal finally replied and denied further action on the grounds that your professors did not reply. I told them they could ask me more questions to authenticate the complaint, but they were unwilling. Moreover, the editor-in-chief wrote to me this time and told me that they were doing a favor to me and giving their precious time.
