A notice of “redundant publication” appeared in the August issue of Sexually Transmitted Infections (2004;80:254). In their reply Dr Underhill and her co-authors suggested that they submitted the duplicate paper to the Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care after discussion with me. While I clearly cannot recall the exact content of our conversation, I would like to stress that it would have been most improper, and therefore highly unlikely, for me, as editor of Sexually Transmitted Infections, to suggest that they submit a duplicate publication to another journal. I would, therefore, like to correct any erroneous impression that might have been suggested to the reader.
