Minerva was perhaps a bit too keen to report a study on doctors committing suicide (17 March). She cited the article as appearing in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, but unfortunately at that point the article had not been published. She failed to realise she was working from prepublication proofs, not a reprint. The paper has now been published—in volume 55, pp 296-300. Thanks to the reader who alerted us to this error.
