Handling Corrections and Errata
Corrections and errata are not indexed by PubMed, even though journals sometimes erroneously send these publications to PubMed. When this happens, the correction or erratum will appear in PubMed with a PMID, but will later be removed when PubMed realizes what type of publication it is. The PMID is then made invalid and so a paper object in WormBase that corresponds to the correction/erratum will have an invalid PMID. For this reason, I haven't approved corrections or errata in the paper editor.
It would, I think, be good to have corrections and errata in the WB paper collection, though, but if we want them we'll need to develop a new pipeline for that.
We could search PubMed for papers in our collection that now have an entry in the <CommentsCorrectionsList> XML tag.
