Publication editor sends me an email telling me I quote another author in my article but said author is not in the references.
Okay, common mistake, easy to fix, since the editor provided me the name of the author. I don't remember quoting this particular author, but since there are lots of those, I don't think too much about it.
I open the article on Google Docs and do a quick Ctrl+f
I do a search in Google Drive
7 different documents have a match (and a few are versions of the article)
I opened all of them and when I search in them, I also get 0/0 found.
Maybe it's in a comment, or something that was deleted? Nope. One of the matches is a PDF of an article not written by me.
I am still baffled.
