Dear William E. Acree, Jr and Editor,

Thank you for your comments concerning “Determination of specific heat capacity and standard molar combustion enthalpy of taurine by DSC.” We had modified the original manuscript and submitted the revised draft with necessary alterations to the editor and commenter on June 27, 2011. However, the article published is still the same original manuscript without any modification. Now, the comments and detailed responses are listed as follows, and the revised draft is now sent to you in the form of attachment once again:
