The Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Theoretical Probability has found that a duplicate of “Convergence of Weighted Sums for Arrays of Negatively Dependent Random Variables and Its Applications” by Jong-Il Baek and Sung-Tae Park, Journal of Theoretical Probability, Volume 23, Issue 2, pages 362–377, was submitted simultaneously on May 31, 2008 to both this journal and Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference and was published, with the explicit consent of the authors, in Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference many months after it was published in this journal. One of the conditions of submission of a paper for publication is that authors declare explicitly that the paper is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. This article thus represents a severe abuse of the scientific publishing system.
For this reason, the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Theoretical Probability, in agreement with the publisher, hereby retracts this article.
As a sanction, Journal of Theoretical Probability will not allow the authors of the article to participate in the journal in any way until January 1, 2018.
