PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

In the methods section of the manuscript we state “Consenting participants were randomised to either intervention or control group”. 

We would like to ammend and elaborate this statement with the following: 

"Consenting participants were allocated to either intervention or control group. Participants were initially (N=29) consecutively allocated to the intervention group to ensure adequate numbers in the intervention condition, after which time participants were allocated to intervention (N=13) and control groups (N=26). Group allocation was not based on any pre-conceived factors."
