Journal of Physiological Anthropology volume 36, Article number: 40 (2017)
After the publication of this work  an error was noticed in one of the formulas. Due to an oversight, a typographical error was identified in the formula for body roundness index (BRI) on page 3 of the article. The printed formula is:
However, the correct formula for BRI is as follows [2–4].
