Since it was published online a year ago, in August 2017 my article entitled “Land accumulation in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam: a question revisited” (https://doi.org/10.1080/02255189.2017.1345722) has received 196 online views– not to mention other readers of the print journal. This is quite great news for me, as it shows that a lot of readers and researchers have been interested in the subject presented in my paper.
During the review process by the CJDS editorial board, which took about one year from the time I submitted my manuscript in August 2016 until it was published online, I had the wonderful experience of receiving and discussing many straight, critical and professional comments as well as many useful and appropriate suggestions from the two anonymous reviewers and from the editorial board. This truly helped me a lot in the process of revising my manuscript, by adding necessary information and citations, by sharpening some critical arguments as well as by restructuring some important parts of the paper. With this letter I would like to express once more my sincere gratitude to the two anonymous reviewers and the CJDS editorial board for all these valuable efforts relating to my paper.
