The response by Edwards was published at online first on 23 oct '15, as recorded in a pdf here: Edwards' response at online first
Our article to which Edwards responded was published at "online first" nearly two weeks later, on 5 nov '15, as recorded in a pdf here: The oud article at online first
Both pdfs were generated on 11nov'15 so as to preserve a record of the dates of "online first" publication, since these dates have already disappeared from the Springer site after the articles were published in an issue of the journal. We have not received any clarification from the journal as to why and how a response to our article could appear online before the publication of our article itself.
