Should the author(s) discover a fundamental error in their work after publication, they are requested to contact Caribbean Medical Journal in order to issue a correction note (corrigendum). Thus, a corrigendum is the notification of an important error made by the author(s) that affects the scientific integrity of the article. It is also possible that an error is made by the journal upon production of the paper (erratum). Thus, an erratum is the notification of an important error made by the journal that affects the scientific integrity of the article. If an error is discovered (by the author(s), the journal, or a reader) so fundamental that it makes a paper obsolete, it will have to be retracted for the sake of scientific correctness. Corrigenda, errata and retractions are published as corresponding notifications in a subsequent issue of the article in question.
