Publisher's Note: Correction

None of these organisations comment on the potential conflicts that might arise when a journal or publisher receives a substantial proportion of its income from reprints (23%, Massachusetts Medical Society; 41%, The Lancet; 53%, American Medical Association).

I misinterpreted Table 3 of the paper by Lundh. The sentence should read "None of these organisations comment on the potential conflicts that might arise when a journal or publisher receives a substantial proportion of its income from reprints and/or advertisements (23% from advertisements (reprints not stated), Massachusetts Medical Society; 41% from reprints,The Lancet and 12% from reprints and 53% from advertisements, American Medical Association)."
