Readers of JAOA—The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association are encouraged to contact the JAOA's managing editor, Rebecca J. Fiala, MA, by phone at (800) 621-1773, extension 8161, or by e-mail at rfiala@osteopathic.org regarding corrections (ie, errata or corrigenda), retractions, and notices of duplicate publication for materials published in The Journal. 
Like most biomedical journals, the JAOA welcomes reader feedback as a natural extension of the peer-review process. Postpublication review is an essential step in ensuring the scientific validity and clinical usefulness of the JAOA, the premier scholarly publication of the osteopathic medical profession. 
The JAOA regrets the errors described below. All of the articles noted have been corrected online. 
▪ In Table 2 of the following article, the state continuing medical education requirements for Florida are mistakenly described on page 88 as being for “`nonlive/participatory' “courses in the table and the sixth footnote (//): 

Rodgers DJ. Osteopathic continuing medical education. J Am Osteopath Assoc. February 2006;106(2):85–95. Available at: http://www.jaoa.org/cgi/content/full/106/2/85. Accessed December 19, 2006.

 
The continuing medical education requirements for the state of Florida should have appeared as shown below: 

40 hours of category 1 or 2 credit biennially – 20 hours must be category 1 credit (AOA or AMA) related to the practice of osteopathic medicine or under osteopathic auspices; course credits are mandated in each of the following topic areas and require live, participatory course attendance: domestic violence (1 hour), Florida state laws and rules (1 hour), risk management (1 hour), and prevention of medical errors (2 hours). Three alternative topic areas are also available: end-of-life care (1 hour), palliative care (1 hour), or controlled substances (1 hour).

 
Similarly, the footnote for this item in Table 2 should have appeared as shown below: 

Florida dropped the requirement for osteopathic physicians to attend face-to-face participatory courses in favor of attendance at live, participatory courses.

 
▪ There was an inadvertent transposition in the table that accompanied the following article: 

McCoy SJ, Beal JM, Shipman SB, Payton ME, Watson GH. Risk factors for postpartum depression: a retrospective investigation at 4-weeks postnatal and a review of the literature. J Am Osteopath Assoc. April 2006;106(4): 193–198. Available at: http://www.jaoa.org/cgi/content/full/106/4/193. Accessed December 19, 2006.

 
The column headings under “EPDS Score, ≥13” were accidentally reversed. The Yes column heading should have appeared first, at the top of the second column of data. The corrected table is shown below:1 
▪ Two typographic errors appeared on page 601 in Figure 1 for the following original contribution: 

Sabini RC, Elkowitz DE. Significance of differences in patency among cranial sutures. J Am Osteopath Assoc. October 2006;106:600–604. Available at: http://www.jaoa.org/cgi/content/full/106/10/600. Accessed December 19, 2006.

 
Sagital and Lamboid should have been spelled Sagittal and Lambdoid. 
▪ There was a typographic error in the spelling of the eighth author's name in the byline of the following article: 

Moukala-Cadet A-M, Mitrosky SJ, Miller GD, Swayze DA, Fielding EJ, Hoh MJ, Dortort AJ, Nebzdoski MA, Cyphert K. Multiple aortocoronary bypass saphenous vein graft aneurysms in a 77-year-old man. J Am Osteopath Assoc. November 2006;106:663–666. Available at: http://www.jaoa.org/cgi/content/full/106/11/663. Accessed December 19, 2006.

 
On page 663, the eighth author's name should have read Melissa A. Nebzydoski, DO, instead of Melissa A. Nebzdoski, DO.
