The authors should alert the editor if the work includes subjects about whom a previous report has been published. Copies of such material should be included with the submitted paper to help the editor decide how to handle the matter. If redundant publication is attempted without such notification, authors should expect editorial action to be taken; at the least, the manuscript will be rejected.
