Corrigenda and Addenda
This section lists all substantive corrections, additions or changes made to articles and reviews subsequent to their first publication in the journal. Corrigenda are usually submitted by the corresponding author of the original article, or the section editor. Published papers are considered "final", thus JMIR makes corrections to published papers only in exceptional circumstances.Note that while we do not charge to correct errata that are the responsibility of the publisher, we charge a $190 fee for discretionary corrigenda and addenda (please submit a correction under that section, if it is the authors' responsibility/decision to correct or add information to a already published article).
For corrigenda that are discretionary and a result of author-oversight (e.g. corrections in the affiliation etc) we charge a $190 processing fee to make changes in the original paper and publish an erratum.Please submit a correction statement (text similar to http://www.jmir.org/2015/3/e76/) at http://www.jmir.org/author/submit/1 under the section "Discretionary Corrigenda".

Symptoms include difficulty reading small print, having to hold reading material farther away, headaches, and eyestrain (Wikipedia).

A commentary is published alongside other articles published in JMIR Publications journals. Commentaries are typically invited. Unsolicited commentaries may be considered at the discretion of the editor. They may or may not be peer-reviewed. Articles submitted as a commentary should offer thoughtful criticism of published work, drawing from evidence, expertise, and/or additional perspectives.
