以酥餅為師

在此先謝謝涂醒哲委員舉行記者會,雖然沒有引起廣大注意,但現在不是自怨自艾,而是自立自強的時刻。

請看以下連結:

「台灣具國家特徵」 瑞士受理訴訟


NASA正名成功


連 NASA 都讓步了,接下來應該跟酥餅討教。


美國國務院一九九六年備忘錄,要求政府相關部門及官員往後提到台灣時,一律以「Taiwan」稱呼,不得使用其他名稱。

針對 A Thomson Reuters CompanyScholarOne Manuscript Central 用 "Taiwan, province of China" 誤稱 Taiwan,懇請大家一人一信去抗議。

抗議信範本與步驟如下:

抗議步驟

一、按一下這個連結,就會出現一個可以填寫建議的表單。

二、在第一部份填下你的郵件信箱,在第二部份填標題 (Subject) 的部份填上「Taiwan is NOT a province of China」

三、將下列的抗議信拷貝在內容 (Description) 的部份寄出。


第一溫和版本

Dear ScholarOne Manuscript Central Official,

In the "Authors & Institutions" for the manuscript submission, you mistakenly list Taiwan as "Taiwan, Province of China", which indicates that Taiwan is part of China. Would you please remove "Province of China" from the list?

Taiwan is an independent country with its own government, elections, currency, army, and defined territory. Taiwan negotiates its own treaties with the United States. It is obvious that Taiwan is not part of China.

It is noteworthy that in the old version of manuscript submission, Taiwan is listed without "Province of China". So, again, would you please remove "Province of China" from Taiwan in the list?

Thank you very much for your concern.

第二嚴厲版本(感謝有力人士提供)

Dear ScholarOne Manuscript Central Official,

Some of my friends told me that Taiwan is not listed in your manuscript submission system as a country, while being shown as "Taiwan, Province of China". It's totally unacceptable, so please remove the "Province of China" attached to Taiwan from the list right away!

Taiwan is an independent country with her own people, government, elections, currency, army, and defined territory. Taiwan, as an independent country, has been negotiating her own treaties with the United States and other independent countries worldwide at a country level. It is out of the questions that Taiwan is part of China.

Also, being noteworthy that in the old version of your manuscript submission system, Taiwan was listed as simply "Taiwan". We have no idea as to why and when "Province of China" had been added to it for whatever the reasons. It's utterly nonsense!

For your information, Swiss court is now reviewing and has accepted the similar complaints raised; the US NASA even expressed not long before their apologies for having stated Taiwan as part of China and had corrected the name for Taiwan as "Taiwan" only in the end. US government has been regulating since 1996 to ask her governmental officials to name our country as "TAIWAN" only. It might give you a better hint and info about how wrong you've been in terms of the administrative submission/management system you have.

Please ask your management team to have "Province of China" removed, or we'll make it an issue among all related stakeholders concerned very soon.

Thank you very much in advance for your immediate attention!!

(請自行選擇適合您的版本,請不要兩個都選)

第三版本(對方冷漠回信以 ISO 搪塞時,再次抗議時使用)

Dear ScholarOne Manuscript Central Official,

Taiwan is an independent country with her own people, government, elections, currency, army, and defined territory. Taiwan, as an independent country, has been negotiating her own treaties with the United States and other independent countries worldwide at a country level. It is out of the questions that Taiwan is part of China.

Also, being noteworthy that in the old version of your manuscript submission system, Taiwan was listed as simply "Taiwan". We have no idea as to why and when "Province of China" had been added to it for whatever the reasons. It's utterly nonsense!

For your information, Swiss court is now reviewing and has accepted the similar complaints raised; the US NASA even expressed not long before their apologies for having stated Taiwan as part of China and had corrected the name for Taiwan as "Taiwan" only in the end. US government has been regulating since 1996 to ask her governmental officials to name our country as "TAIWAN" only. It might give you a better hint and info about how wrong you've been in terms of the administrative submission/management system you have.

It is like saying Cuba is part of the United States, which we know is not true no matter how you look at it. Please ask your management team to have "Province of China" removed, or we'll make it an issue among all related stakeholders concerned very soon.

Thank you very much in advance for your immediate attention!!

四、Journal/Meeting 填上 Ocular Immunology & Inflammation

五、按送出 (Submit your comments)

台灣正名尚未成功,眼科醫師仍須努力!也懇請雖不是眼科醫師的中華民國國民,在此艱難時刻發動一人一信,幫助眼科醫師及台灣人民爭一口氣。

Dear Blinddoc:
剛收到學會的回函貼給您看看。
Thank you for contacting ScholarOne Techincal Support.

With the new release of MC 4.1.1 the country list has updated according to the ISO list of countries. Please review the list on the following URL:

http://www.iso.org/iso/country_codes/iso_3166_code_lists/english_country_names_and_code_elements.htm

Taiwan is presented on MC as it is on the ISO country list as TAIWAN, PROVINCE OF CHINA. Until the ISO updates the list, no changes to the current dropdown list of countries on MC will be made. Since the 4.0 release of MC, we have become ISO compliant, which means we are obliged to follow the ISO standards in all aspects of our work.

At the top of the page of the following link you will find the ISO's response as to why they list Taiwain as they do.

I apologize for the frustration that causes you.

Kind regards,

還算客氣的回覆,但似乎源頭不在那邊.......

不好意思﹐訂正錯誤 no matter how

Hello and Color said...

I did it!
這件事很有意義,今天不做,明天就會後悔,如果不表達我們的心聲,今天是醫學雜誌,明天可能是其他國際場合,人家還以為我們默然接受這個稱謂。

blinddoc said...

Hello

非常謝謝您的聲援
也請每位朋友繼續幫忙

kt said...

我當然也寄出一份不算溫和的[伊玫兒]。
但是我明白最原始的問題是:
臺灣退出聯合國。
想回頭再加入,
卻被中國大陸施壓阻擋。
除非臺灣能進聯合國,
臺灣正名永遠要運動下去。
我們不知在紐約聯合國門口抗議多少次,
連在紐約遊行也被大陸打壓。
各項比賽都被迫用[Taipei, China]。
甚至公開比賽場合不准用臺灣國旗。
生氣失望那是難免!
但是政府沒有變通辦法擠進[聯合國],
小百姓只好自己努力以赴的做草根外交了。

NO!NO!NO! Taiwan is NOT part of China.

您看事情如此透徹還願意幫忙

海內海外都是一家人

感謝您的支援

Hello and Color said...

今天投稿Blood發現這本期刊也是這樣,把台灣寫成中國的一省,而且這還是Blood網站自己的投稿網頁,不是外包給Manuscript Central的,真的很令人生氣。

Dear Hello

對啊,快被氣死了。

只能祝福您的大作早日被接受

再自己把國家改回去

台灣 加油!
