In the article "Flaws Documented, Reforms Debated at Congress on Journal Peer Review" (JAMA. 1993;270:2775-2778), a statement in the third full paragraph on page 2776 requires clarification. The first sentence should read as follows: "A survey by 71 of the 73 US-based journals with the highest citation frequency scores on the 1989 Institute for Scientific Information Journal Citation Reports reveals that 28% do not ask reviewers to assess a paper's novelty, 31% do not specifically ask about clarity, and 49% do not ask if conclusions are reasonable."
