The authors of the original article “Network pharmacology for the identification of phytochemicals in traditional Chinese medicine for COVID-19 that may regulate interleukin-6” (Biosci Rep (2021) 41(1), would like to correct the authorship of their article. The co-corresponding author Fei Peng had been removed from the main authorship line at proof by the author erroneously, though Fei Peng was still listed as a correspondence.

The correct authorship list is therefore as follows:

Wen-hao Niu1, Feng Wu2, Wen-yue Cao3, Zong-gui Wu1, Yu-Chieh Chao4, Fei Peng5 and Chun Liang1
