Abstract

We thank editorial team for drawing our attention to the retracted article cited in our published article. A thorough review of our published article indicated that the retracted article by Sosso and Kuss (2018) as cited in our article does not have a significant impact on our discussion of the objective/results of our study. Hence, we have deleted the citation concerning this retracted article in order to prevent the proliferation of incorrect information/study. Please find below the revised sections in our manuscript. At the introduction section, the sentence that contained the citation of by Sosso and Kuss (2018) has been deleted. Hence, the sentence has changed from • “Among adolescents, IGD is positively associated with their psychological distress (depression, anxiety, and stress) and sleep quality (e.g., insomnia, sleep duration, and sleep latency) (Sosso and Kuss, 2018, Strong et al., 2018, Wong et al., 2020) while an inverse association has been reported between psychiatric distress (depression, anxiety, and stress) and quality of life (Adib-Hajbaghery et al., 2015; Freire & Ferreira, 2018; Raknes et al., 2017).”to • “Among adolescents, IGD is positively associated with their psychological distress (depression, anxiety, and stress) and sleep quality (e.g., insomnia, sleep duration, and sleep latency) (Strong et al., 2018, Wong et al., 2020) while an inverse association has been reported between psychiatric distress (depression, anxiety, and stress) and quality of life (Adib-Hajbaghery et al., 2015; Freire & Ferreira, 2018; Raknes et al., 2017).”At the discussion section, the sentence that contained the citation of by Sosso and Kuss (2018) has been deleted. Hence, the sentence has changed from • “These findings indicate that as one variable increases so do the other variables and vice versa (Cohen, 1988, 1992), and is similar to previous studies (Sosso and Kuss, 2018, Wong et al., 2020).”to • “These findings indicate that as one variable increases so do the other variables and vice versa (Cohen, 1988, 1992), and is similar to previous study (Wong et al., 2020).”The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
