Hi, I submitted my paper to The Journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) and got major revision. While revising my paper, I removed the fifth author. Now the editor has asked me to explain the reason. How should I explain it appropriately? Do I need to provide any material? Will my paper get rejected because of this? Thank you!

We performed a research in the large-scale randomized design, based on the result of a pilot study in the small, non-randomized design. When writing the manuscript, the expression in the sections of introduction, methods and discussion are inevitable to be similar or duplicated with the ones of the manuscript for the pilot study. Even if we state the background (like the 1st sentence in this question), is this submission regarded as a duplicate submission?

I would like to publish an article. My field of work is protein engineering. I performed some part of my work in another lab. People in the lab technically helped me to do the experiments. but the main idea and proposal was mine. The problem that now I have is that I am not sure to put their name as coauthors since the most important experiment has not yet been performed by them after one year that I requested. They do not have that much contribution on my work. I wrote the article with those...
