comment Subcontracting courses?
@BenCrowell: Interesting, do you know what happened to the faculty member responsible for the course? I imagine it could lead to firing for dereliction of duty, but I don't know how it would likely play out in practice.

I probably wouldn't, but this would be safer than announcing it earlier in the process.

comment What is a curriculum?
I'm not an expert in curriculum and instruction. If you're writing for a targeted audience like that, it's important to look into how they conceive of a curriculum. However, I don't think most faculty members defer to experts on the definition of terms like curriculum (instead, the meanings are established by common usage), so it depends on who your audience is.

comment Author wants to withdraw or insist on re-reviewing at proof stage of publication
@Lohoris In my experience, authors have to sign off on the page proofs and have not given their final approval to the published version until that point, regardless of whether they have signed the publishing agreement and copyright transfer form already. Authors may sign those forms early in the process as a sign of good faith, but if a dispute arises, it's not reasonable for the journal to say "Oh well, you already agreed to publish the paper, so we don't really need your approval for the page proofs." (You can't even do this if the author is being difficult or unreasonable.)

comment Author wants to withdraw or insist on re-reviewing at proof stage of publication
Ugh, that complicates things a little. I wouldn't want to censor references based on where they are published (and in principle a reference shouldn't be viewed as an endorsement, despite the popularity of citation counting). However, this makes me less sympathetic to the author. I think referring to predatory journals would hurt the author's reputation rather than the journal's (except to the small extent that it lower opinions of this paper), so I wouldn't worry about this too much, but it leaves me feeling that the author may be pretty far out there regarding eccentricity or cluelessness.

See also academia.stackexchange.com/questions/34202/… (which doesn't focus on degrees, but rather employment/affiliations).
