Correction: Characteristics of ‘mega’ peer-reviewers

The Original Article was published on 21 February 2022

Correction to: Res Integr Peer Rev 7, 1 (2022)

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors identified an error in the ‘Results’, both in the Abstract and in the main text: it incorrectly stated that ‘a greater proportion of mega peer reviews were male (92%) as compared to the control reviewers (70% male)’, instead of 74% vs 58% as listed in the table.

In addition, ‘Web of Science’ needed to be changed to ‘Clarivate’ in the main text and the ‘Acknowledgements’ section.

The original article [1] has been corrected.
