The authors of this paper, Elpidoforos S Soteriades and Matthew E Falagas, have alerted us to errors in two columns of their table (BMJ 2005;331:192-4, 23 Jul). For the columns headed “Papers per $bn” and “Citations per $bn” the authors should have supplied values a 10th lower; therefore the given values should all have a decimal point before the final digit (although for Malta the given value 0.2 is correct). In addition, during editing we mangled the average population of France: it should be 58.6 (not 5.6) million.
