On the first publication, sole authorship in this paper was attributed to Dr Naiwei Chen.
Following this initial online publication in 2010, Dr Chen realized that the role and contribution to this work of his master's student, Yong-jhih Zeng, was not reflected in the publication.
An acknowledgement was subsequently included in the final version of this paper, which appeared in issue 24:2 as follows:
I am deeply indebted to a master's student of mine, Yong–jhih Zeng, for his assistance in gathering and summarizing the data. This paper is based on the research project supported by National Science Council (NSC96-2416-H-194-029-), Taiwan and is an extension of the thesis of Yong–jhih Zeng (2009) under the guidance of Naiwei Chen.
However, Dr Chen still feels that this acknowledgement is not sufficient recognition, and he believes that joint authorship with Yong-jhih Zeng would be more correct reflection of the authorship of the paper.
Dr Chen would like to correct this error, and wants to acknowledge and confirm that this paper has been jointly authored between himself and Yong-jhih Zeng.
