Erratum

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error.

Under ‘Study 2’, the text read: “The first search was the same as in the Study 1, except that we screened all articles that were co-cited in more than 1 % of the citing articles.”

However, this sentence should have also included articles that were “co-cited more than once”, to read: “The first search was the same as in the Study 1, except that we screened all articles that were co-cited more than once and co-cited in more than 1 % of the citing articles.”

We apologise for this error.
