Correction Notice


Dear Readers and Authors,

To ensure the completeness of the details of the authors' name, affiliation, correspondence address, and other metadata, as well as the correct citations and reference formats in the pdf version of the articles in Belitung Nursing Journal, we have been checking each article since the first volume in 2015.

The articles that have changes due to major errors are given a separate erratum. Major errors impact the interpretation of the article. The erratum should provide clear details of the error and the changes that have been made to the Version of Record. Under these circumstances BNJ will:

  • Correct the online article.
  • Issue a separate erratum electronically linked back to the corrected version.
  • Add a footnote to the article displaying the electronic link to the erratum.
  • Paginate and make available the erratum in the online issue of the journal.

The articles that have changes due to minor errors are given a footnote in the first page of the article. Minor errors do not impact the reliability of, or the reader’s understanding of, the scholarly content. They include:

  • Minor layout changes/fixes
  • Typos or grammatical issues that are in the main body of the manuscript and do not affect the content or meaning of a sentence. However, if the typo is a number, a separate erratum or a corrigendum is usually required as it changes meaning. If typo is in the title, a separate erratum or a corrigendum is required.
  • Minor fixes in references as long as the reference stays essentially the same (we usually do not update broken links to external websites as linkrot over time is to be expected).
  • Updating metadata in the pdf file can be done as long as it does not change the metadata in the system (for example: if in the pdf file of the article did not have the address for correspondence nor complete address of each author's affiliation (or only in html of the website), it can be updated). Changing metadata in the system requires a separate erratum or a corrigendum.

Please check BNJ policy on article correction.

We expect to finish the checking and correction at the end of August 2020.

The publisher regrets for the omissions and errors in the past.
