El Sherif R, Pluye P, Gore G, Granikov V, Hong QN. Performance of a mixed filter to identify relevant studies for mixed studies reviews. J Med Libr Assoc. 2016 Jan;104(1):47–51. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3163/1536-5050.104.1.007.

The totals in Table 1, Number of relevant records retrieved and Number of nonrelevant records not retrieved by the filter, should be 1,776 and 1,398, rather than 1,176 and 1,396, respectively. The corresponding total number of records identified in the study should be 4,546, rather than 4,547.
