In last week's article 'Women in science' the titles of the two boxes naming women scientists was mixed up. The Royal Society had named 10 women scientists from the past in a 'top ten' but they did not include any living scientists in their list. The box which included names of living people, and which was incorrectly headed 'the Royal Society top ten', was a selection chosen by the Independent on Sunday and not the Royal Society. We are sorry for this mix-up.
