Please note that following publication of the original article [1], one of the authors has flagged that the abbreviations section lists “BRIC” as “Britain, Russia, India and China”.

However, in accordance with reference ‘38’ [2], in relation to which ‘BRIC’ is referred, the correct meaning of BRIC is in fact: “Brazil, Russia, India and China”.
