Abstract

The cartoon on the cover of the 4 October issue (Science in Japan: Competition on campus) contains two errors in the kanji characters used to convey the words of two of the persons depicted therein. The figure on the left, who represents a Japanese government official, is telling the students to pursue a spirit of inquiry in seeking a Ph.D. (“spirit of inquiry” was not conveyed), while the figure on the right, a businessman, is offering them immediate (the character for “immediate” was incorrect) employment. Science apologizes for the errors in the drawing, rendered by Japanese manga artist Tomoko Saito.
