Copy editor, stat! PNAS spells its editor-in-chief’s name wrong — on a piece he co-authored
With apologies in advance to the good folks at the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) for making a joke about something that could very well happen to any of us, we note the following correction:
Correction for Verman and Harris, PNAS introduces new magazine section
EDITORIAL Correction for “PNAS introduces new magazine section,” by Inder M. Verman and David J. Harris, which appeared in issue 7, February 12, 2013, of Proc Natl Acad Sci USA (110:2427; first published January 30, 2013; 10.1073/pnas.1300186110).
The editors note that the author name Inder M. Verman should instead appear as Inder M. Verma. The corrected author line appears below. The online version has been corrected.
Inder M. Verma and David J. Harris
Verma, of course, is the editor-in-chief of PNAS. Which only goes to show that errors do, after all, escape editors’ attention sometimes. As Harris tells us:
I saw it in the online table of contents for Early Edition (our pre-publication papers that come out daily) as soon as it came out and alerted our production team. They may have already been alerted to it by others. It’s one of those things where an infinite number of eyes can still miss something obvious!
