VPHA communication: JVSTA manuscript authorship double-checking

The email below was sent to 71 VPHA co-authors. 
Dear VPHA co-authors,

We have started the preparations for the JVSTA special ALD issue article. As agreed earlier, all those who participated in the VPHA voting in June, will be co-authors. (A bit less than half of all VPHA co-authors participated in the VPHA voting.)

It has been manual work to pick out persons for the author list, and there is a chance for human error in this procedure. With this email, I would like to double-check that the author list of the JVSTA article is as it should be.  
Below you find the correspondence just sent to all co-authors (some links removed), with the co-author list at the end.  If you are not in the co-author list (and you did not get the email) but you think you should be (= you participated in the voting in June), please let us know asap by emailing info@ (remove space).

Best regards,

Subject: VPHA JVSTA manuscript to all co-authors for commenting / DL Sept 4

Dear co-authors,

Finally, we can send you the first draft of the manuscript of VPHA voting, to be submitted to the special ALD issue of Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology A:
  • Title: Recommended reading list of early publications on Atomic Layer Deposition --- outcome of the Virtual Project on the History of ALD
  • Authors: Akbashev et al. (many co-authors…)

Please find attached the first full manuscript draft. This first version has been written collaboratively by mainly Henrik, Riikka and Ruud, and the other people of the informal “core organizational group” of VPHA (Jonas, Oksana, Yury) have also seen and commented upon it. Many details are still to be worked out, including the reference list, which is underdeveloped, so major revision will be underway. For the next revision, we also want to accommodate all the major comments by our large co-author group. Most likely, in some cases, we will need to work out to find compromises acceptable by all co-authors.  

We will have to be quick and efficient in the editing, not to be too much late from the JVSTA special ALD issue deadline. (In any case, we will have to ask for more time compared to the deadline of Sept 6.) For quick and efficient collecting of the comments, the whole manuscript has been copy-pasted in Google docs, in a file called <text removed>.
  • link here: <link removed>.
  • Everyone who has the link, can view and comment on it
  • The core organizational group will have editing rights.   

Next steps for all co-authors
  1. Please read through the manuscript.
  2. Please add your preferred address in the <link removed> file.
  3. Please add all your comments in the <link removed> file.
  4. Deadline for comments: Sunday, Sept 4.  

Next week, we will review all comments and prepare the next manuscript version on the basis of those. Most likely, there will be another commenting round coming; however, that will be for minor comments only; all major comments should preferably come in this first commenting round.

Other notes:
  • The list of authors comes from the list of people who have voted. It has been made by hand, so it is possible that some people are accidentally missing. I will communicate the author list to the whole VPHA group for checking the author list.
  • The reference list needs to be generated still. If there is someone in the co-author list who would volunteer for typing in the references, please let us know.
  • We prefer to get comments through the Google document. If this is difficult for you, you can also write your comments in the word file, with Track changes on, and send it to info@ (delete the space). We will try to find your comments from the file; however, there is an increased risk of not seeing some suggestions if sent this way.
