I am freaking out and I would really appreciate any suggestion. My manuscript has been published without my permission in a conference proceeding while at the same time, the same paper is being reviewed to be published in a different journal. I did present my research in a small conference in July 2015, which is why they have access to my manuscript. However, I did not submit my paper to be published in the proceeding, and I specifically requested them not to publish my manuscript in their proceeding because I had been planning to submit my full paper to a respectable journal in the field. In October 2015, the conference committee has confirmed by email that they will not publish my paper in their proceeding, which is why I submitted my manuscript to the journal. However, when the conference proceeding was published online in their website in February 2016, I was shocked to find out that my paper is still published in the proceeding. Thinking that they might have made a mistake, I immediately asked them to republish the proceeding without my paper, which they did immediately, and apologized. However, today I found out that somehow my paper is still included in their online proceeding. I am afraid that the journal editors will think that I have violated their publication ethics - worst case I will be blacklisted to publish in their publication. What should I do? This is my first manuscript submission and I already mess it up. I'm trying not to have a panic attack *breathe*
