Corrigenda and Addenda

Open Submissions
Indexed
Peer Reviewed

Authors spotting errors in already published articles, or wanting to add material after publication, can use the CORRECTIONS AND ADDENDA section to submit their corrections. Note that the authors must be the same authors as the original article. Upload a word document citing the corrected manuscript, and outline the required changes (use past tense, as if the changes have already been made, as this will be published at the same time as the corrected article). Please comment explicitly on whether the changes are minor and do not affect the overall results and conclusions of the paper.
