It has been brought to our attention that the contents of an article published by Sancini et al in the May 2012 issue of JOEM1 is a duplication of material previously published in a non-indexed Italian language publication of the Istituto Superiore Prevenzione e Sicurezza Lavoro.2 The authors of the Sancini et al article signed a copyright transfer and disclosure form stating the material had not published previously. However, they did not cite the prior publication and did not acknowledge that the work had been previously published. It should be understood that this notice of duplicate publication does not reflect any concerns about the actual scientific content of the article. Dr. Tomei is the corresponding author of both articles and has been informed of this decision.
