[R-pkg-devel] Cannot submit package due to misspell note

IMHO citation info is something completely different. I’ve been asked to add references in description field by CRAN maintainers

Thanks, can you please extend your description text.

Can you provide some references in the form authors (year) <doi:...> or <arXiv:...> (no space after 'doi:' and 'arXiv:')?

So it is not about citation info for the package but references to methods implemented ☹.

Thanks anyway for your help.

 Why not remove the references and instead put them in the package citation info?

I've stuck in submitting new version of package(mdsOpt), due to the following note,

Possibly mis-spelled words in DESCRIPTION:
  De (13:2)
  Diday (14:48)
  Groenen (12:13, 14:2)
  Leeuw (13:5)
  Mair (12:30, 13:16)
  Walesiak (15:2, 16:2)
  Winsberg (14:19)

which cause the rejection at submission process.

The description file / section looks like this:

Description: Selecting the optimal multidimensional scaling (MDS) procedure for metric data via metric MDS (ratio, interval, mspline) and nonmetric MDS (ordinal). Selecting the optimal multidimensional scaling (MDS) procedure for interval-valued symbolic data via metric MDS (ratio, interval, mspline). Selecting the optimal MDS procedure for statistical data referring to the evaluation of tourist attractiveness of Lower Silesian counties.

 Walesiak, M. (2017) <doi:10.15611/ekt.2017.3.01>).

I've tried to check  the documentation but found nothing about including references in description files (which AFAIK is now required).

Thank in advance for any help!
