PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Correction: Ref #17 PLoS ONE 2011 (not 2001)

Dear Authors:

Congratulations on your published work, and thank you for sharing your research findings that demonstrate the significance and usefulness of behavioral research in preventing infectious diseases, as echoed in our recent avian influenza study (cited in your article as Reference #17).

My co-authors and I were pleased to learn that our article was cited in your paper, but unfortunately, there is a typographical error, which we hope the publisher (BMC Infectious Diseases) could correct as soon as possible -- i.e., the publication year of our article is 2011, not 2001. The correct (full) citation is as follows for your reference. Thank you.
