In viewing the paper [1] online, the author noticed a few errors/issues with the document. The image for Table 1 does not appear visible when selected. Table 1 also appears to have several horizontal lines missing from it under the subheader “Network development, maintenance, and facilitation”, and several vertical lines missing between the “knowledge management” and “linkage and exchange” activity domains which has been corrected here.
Table 1

Classification of knowledge brokering tasks according to activity domains

Additionally, the wrong files have been uploaded for “Additional file 3” and “Additional file 4”. Currently the reference numbers in these additional files do not align with the final version of the manuscript. The correct files have been placed here.
