Following publication of the original article [1], the authors would like to correct the formula of the Polr model equation in the paragraph under the heading Enhanced proportional odds logistic regression (ePolr).

The formula currently reads:

$$ \mathrm{P}\left({\mathrm{Y}}^{\mathrm{III}}\le {\mathrm{y}}^{\mathrm{III}}\left|x\right.\;\right)=\mathrm{expit}\left(h\left({\mathrm{y}}^{\mathrm{III}}\left|{\mathrm{y}}^0\right.\right)+\beta \cdot x\right)\;\left(\mathrm{Polr}\right) $$

The formula should read:

$$ \mathrm{P}\left({\mathrm{Y}}^{\mathrm{III}}\le {\mathrm{y}}^{\mathrm{III}}\left|x\right.\;\right)=\mathrm{expit}\left(h\left({\mathrm{y}}^{\mathrm{III}}\right)+\beta \cdot x\right)\;\left(\mathrm{Polr}\right) $$

The original article [1] has been corrected.
