Do I need permission to thank someone, even if I said “all mistakes are our own”?
Do I have to make sure that the person being thanked must read the paper, or, it is fine if he just discussed about the general ideas and the administration stuffs of the target journal?
As a student I don't know how does a specific journal work so I asked a lot of questions. I think I need to ask for the permission before acknowledging, but, if it is unnecessary, then I will be just wasting the time of a super busy professor.
I know that in Math people almost never ask for permissions but in life science people need permissions. I think theoretical economics follows the culture in mathematics?
