International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Thanks, Mindy!

    Does anyone know how long it takes for PNAS to publish a paper once it has been accepted? It's months for some journals but very fast for others.

    What takes a long time normally is for reviewers to write their review. We don't know if the PNAS will be sending the "new" paper back to the reviewers. Even if they are planning to do it the reviewers already know the paper they will have just to check the changes made so it should not take very long I would say.

    Thank you, Mindy. We are fortunate to have you helping us get the message out, since most of us barely have the energy to get through the day.

    oh, I thought it was approved for print. I guess we have learned there is approved for print stage I and approved for print stage II.

    I wish I could be more optimistic about all of this, but it seems like we really don't know a) what the paper now says and b) if/when it will be approved.

    dsdmom -
    I agree. I'm concerned about this. We know the paper had been reviewed, accepted for publication, and in galleys. We know it confirmed the WIP/NCI/Cleveland Clinic study.
    Now the new version will be submitted in a few weeks - and needs to go through the "accepted/not-accepted" decision again.
    Still feels fishy. Still a lot of potential for things to go wrong.
