In the December - 2013 [Vol 20(2)] issue of this Journal, an article entitled ‚ÄúRelevance of Violence with Social well Being of Working Adolescents in Pakistan‚ÄĚ was published. Nonetheless, the detailed contribution of the authors was inadvertently missed. It is to be noted that the said article was built upon the data collected for doctoral dissertation of the first author (Muhammad Ramzan) who conceptualized and organized the text of the paper. The second author (Muhammad Zakria Zakir) contributed to the research design and methodology related issues. The third author (Zubair Ahmad) worked for statistical analysis. The fourth author (Shazia Qureshi) contributed to health and human rights related issues discussed in the paper.
