the magnetic moments of many of those excited nuclei are not quoted in nuclear tables. A good reason to suppose that they are not quoted because they have null magnetic moments. Therefore cannot be detected by experiments, which explain why they are not quoted in nuclear tables.

So, I wrote a paper, entitled “*Proposal of an experiment able to eliminate the controversy: are right, or wrong the foundations of the Standard Nuclear Theory?*”, and submitted it to European Physical Journal A, in 15-Oct-2018.

The Editor-in-Chief, Prof Maria Borge, rejected the paper with the following Report:

“*Thank you for submitting your paper mentioned above to EPJ A « Hadrons and Nuclei ». The content of the article is not correct. It try to generalise the absent of data of magnetic moments for the 2+ states of conjugated nuclei to invalidate theory. Some of the cases you mentioned has been measured and there are good agreement with shell model calculations. I recommend you to read, for instance, PRL114 (2015)062501 and even the old compilation of NJ Stone, Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Table 90 (2005) 75 where some magnetic moments for 2+ states are already given.*

*Therefore, I cannot accept your contribution for publication in EPJ A*.”

I have read that paper published in 2015 by Physical Review Letters, and I discovered the following error in the procedure of calculation:

- The authors have considered that excited 12Mg24 has spherical shape. And for their calculations, they used a nuclear table, published by S. Raman in 2001.
- But in 2012 the journal Nature published a paper, regarding an experiment which detected that nuclei with pair numbers Z of protons and N of neutrons have not spherical shape. This experimental finding of 2012 had demonstrated to be correct the prediction in the page 137, of my book Quantum Ring Theory, that atomic nuclei with Z pair, being Z=N, actually have ellipsoidal shapes.
- Therefore, they had wrongly used the Raman’s table, which after 2012 no longer can be applied for pairs Z=N nuclei.

So, I wrote a new paper, entitled “*Mandatory check for Misunderstandings on Measurements for Magnetic Moments of Excited Even-even Atomic Nuclei*”, in which is showed that Physical Review Letters had published in 2015 a paper where a wrong math procedure is applied, and I submitted it to European Physical Journal A.

The paper was rejected by the Editor-in-chief Maria Borge, with the following Report:

“*Thank you for submitting your paper mentioned above to EPJ A **‘**Hadrons and Nuclei**’**. However, the subject of this paper is outside the aims and scopes of EPJ A.
Therefore, I cannot acce*

*pt it for publication in EPJ A*.”

The paper was published by Physics Essays in July 2019 – with the title “*Wrong math procedure used in nuclear physics for the calculation of magnetic moments of excited Z=N even-even nuclei*”.
