“To be sure, Akiyoshi has made a limited effort to bring this paper up to date, but it remains one of several in the volume that leaves the impression that it is something recycled from much earlier graduate school research rather than current ongoing work.”

With all due respect, sir, I wrote my doctoral dissertation in 2004. I did not use the ISSP 2007 or any similar dataset in my dissertation. The chapter you mentioned is not a recycled material. It takes approximately three minutes to check my Ph.D dissertation topic and year on Proquest and other databases.

Kinmonth did not check facts. Instead, he simply speculated based on zero evidence.  If he did, he would have learnt that my dissertation is about the diffusion of the internet in Japan. Except for the research site, my dissertation topic has little to do with the chapter. The reason I used the ISSP for this chapter is because it was the latest best-quality dataset availbale on the subject at the time of writing. I did all analysis from scratch specifically for this chapter in 2016/2017. Kinmonth’s comments are factually wrong.
