Correction for ‘Are current guidelines for sun protection optimal for health? Exploring the evidence’ by Robyn M. Lucas et al., Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2018, DOI: 10.1039/c7pp00374a.


The authors would like to draw the reader's attention to an error in the caption to Fig. 2, where UVI > 10 should read UVI > 6, as per the text on the figure. The caption should read: “Frequency distribution of UVA (y-axis, normalised to unity in each case) for the case where UVI is less than 3 (red), and for the case where UVI is greater than 6 (blue). The data used are the same as shown in Fig. 1 (i.e., daytime scans only). In nearly 5–10% of cases, the UVA for UVI < 3 is greater than that for UVI > 6”. The in-text reference to Fig. 2 should also be UVI > 6, rather than >10.
