This notice clarifies the relationship between ‘Preoperative CT-based nomogram for predicting overall survival in women with non-endometrioid carcinomas of the uterine corpus. Authored by: Lakhman Y, Yakar D, Goldman DA, Katz SS, Vargas HA, Miccò M, Zheng J, Moskowitz CS, Soslow RA, Hricak H, Abu-Rustum NR, Sala E. Abdom Imaging. 2014 Dec 31. DOI 10.1007/s00261-014-0337-0’ and ‘Diagnostic Performance of Computed Tomography for Preoperative Staging of Patients with Non-endometrioid Carcinomas of the Uterine Corpus; Authored by: Lakhman Y, Katz SS, Goldman DA, Yakar D, Vargas HA, Sosa RE, Miccò M, Soslow RA, Hricak H, Abu-Rustum NR, Sala E. Ann Surg Oncol. 2015 Feb 10. DOI 10.1245/s10434-015-4410-x’.
The two articles were examined following the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE, www.publicationethics.org <http://www.publicationethics.org>) guidelines with regard to suspected redundant publication. C. Daniel Johnson, M.D., Editor in Chief of Abdominal Imaging and Dr. Charles M. Balch, M.D., Editor in Chief of Annals of Surgical Oncology recognize the overlap in the patient cohort analyzed. Yet, both Journal Editors felt that different rationales and criteria were used in the two publications that lead to different, though complimentary, conclusions on different aspects of the dataset studied. It was decided to publish this notice to state this conclusion.
