Incorrect Spelling of Author Name, Incorrect Affiliation of Another Author, and Removal of Academic Degree

JAMA. 2019;322(17):1718. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.16269

In the Original Investigation entitled “Association of Thyroid Function Test Abnormalities and Thyroid Autoimmunity With Preterm Birth: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis”1 published in the August 20, 2019, issue of JAMA, the first name was incorrectly spelled for one of the authors, the affiliation for another author was incorrect, and an academic degree for a third individual was incorrect. In the byline, “Judith Bassols, MD” should have been “Judit Bassols, MD.” Also in the byline, one of the affiliation numbers for John P. Walsh, MB, PhD, was incorrect and the associated affiliations at the end of the article for “Maternal-Fetal Metabolic Research Group, Girona Biomedical Research Institute, Dr Josep Trueta Hospital, Girona, Spain (Bassols, Walsh)” should have been “Maternal-Fetal Metabolic Research Group, Girona Biomedical Research Institute, Dr Josep Trueta Hospital, Girona, Spain (Bassols)” and “Department of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Nedlands, Australia (Brown, Walsh).” In the Additional Contributions section, “Amna Pirzada, MD (Shifa College of Medicine, Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University)” should have been “Amna Pirzada (Shifa College of Medicine, Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University).” This article was corrected online.
