Incomplete and Incorrect Information in Author Affiliations

JAMA Intern Med. 2020;180(1):167. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2019.6286

In the Original Investigation titled “Association of Radiation Dose With Prevalence of Thyroid Nodules Among Atomic Bomb Survivors Exposed in Childhood (2007-2011),” published online December 29, 2014, and in the February 2015 print issue of JAMA Internal Medicine,1 incomplete and incorrect information appeared in the Author Affiliations section. For the first affiliation (Department of Clinical Studies, Radiation Effects Research Foundation, Nagasaki, Japan), a second location in Hiroshima should have been listed, and 4 authors originally shown as being at the Nagasaki location should have been listed at the Hiroshima location instead. In addition, the city given for the third affiliation (Department of Statistics, Radiation Effects Research Foundation, Nagasaki, Japan) should have been given as Hiroshima rather than Nagasaki. This article was corrected online.
