Repeated references!

I certainly appreciate that you cited our paper (Aziz RK et al., RAST) five times. This way we will get FIVE more citations rather than ONE! I just wonder how did this happen. I thought the convention is to use the same number [5] every time the paper is referenced.

Competing interests declared: I am author of the cited paper (referenced under numbers: 5, 16, 20, 21, 23)

Thanks. I will check with the journal to see if this can be fixed.
