Editorial Announcement: Withdrawal of Chin. Phys. Lett. 24 (2007) 355

Vol. 25, No. 8 (2008) 3094

This paper was submitted on 13 October 2006 and appeared in the February issue of 2007 in Chinese Physics Letters. Later it appeared also as arXiv: grqc/0704.0525 in April 2007.

As noted recently by the arXiv administrator, this paper plagiarized an earlier arXiv paper (grqc/0410004) by M. Sharif and T. Fatima, which also appeared in Int. J. Mod. Phys. A 20 (2005) 4309, and another arXiv paper (gr-qc/0603075) by R. M. Gad.

This article by S. Aygun et al. should not have been submitted for publication owing to such substantial replication of earlier papers. Chinese Physics Letters hereby declares the withdrawal of this paper ‘
On the Energy–Momentum Problem in Static Einstein Universe’ by S. Aygun, I. Tarhan, and H. Baysal published in Chinese Physics Letters 24 (2007) 355

It is unfortunate that this plagiarism was not detected before going to press. I apologize to the readers of Chinese Physics Letters and to Dr M. Sharif, Dr T. Fatima, and Dr R. M. Gad for such an oversight.
