Notes of the EC of The International Journal of Inclusive Democracy, Autumn 2009

NOTE of the EC, September 2009: The version of Oikonomou's article published here (note of the webmaster: published in IJID, Vol.2, No.1, is not identical with the version published in D&N Vol. 9, No. 2 at:

The reason for this discrepancy is that the author submitted a different final version of the article to the Editor of D&N than the one he submitted to the publisher, after making significant changes at the proofs stage for which he did not inform the Editor, as he was obliged to do, as this is normal practice. Yet, the author made repeated presentations to the EC of IJID, four years after the publication of this version of the article, demanding the replacement of the present version with the unauthorized  by the Editor version, which was published in D&N! Clearly, this was not only unjustifiable in view of what was noted above, but also non-feasible given that once an article is published in this Journal and indexed by the indexing bodies no further changes are possible to its original form, particularly so as articles are published now in .pdf format

NOTE of the EC, November 2009. Despite the fact that the version published in the print edition of D&N, as stated above, was unauthorized by the editor, in a spirit of conciliation, we agreed nevertheless to reproduce this version in the electronic form of D&N at

However, following a deceitful attempt by the  editor of Agora International David Ames Curtis' (well known for his past defamatory attacks against our journal) to completely distort the facts in the CC Agora Newsletter dated November 2009, confirming  once again the main function of CC Agora International to misinform readers according to its editor's  objectives, the EC decided the following: a) to withdraw the unauthorized version from the electronic form of D&N b) to denounce Y. Oikonomou, the author, who,  dishonestly, allowed Curtis to publish the following deceitful announcement.

"Plato and Castoriadis: The Concealment and the Unravelling [sic] of Democracy." /The International Journal of Inclusive Democracy/, 2:1(September 2005). 15pp. [N.B.: This 2005 internet reprint, which now includes a "Note of the EC, September 2009" blaming the author for the "discrepancy" between the /D&N/ and the /IJID/ versions, altered the originally published title without the consent or knowledge of the author, included a final footnote that incorrectly appears as if it were the author's, and made other unauthorized alterations not indicated as such. /IJID/ now reports that the author has "repudiate[d]" the /IJID/ version, the /IJID/ terming the /D&N/ version "the unauthorized by the Editor version."
