Title: Publisher's Note: Level structure 18Ne and its importance in the 14O(α,p) 17F reaction rate [Phys. Rev. C 86, 025801(2012)]

The level structure of 18Ne above the α-decay threshold has been studied using the 16O( 3He,n) reaction. A coincidence measurement of neutrons and charged particles decaying from populated states in 18Ne has been made. Decay branching ratios were measured for six resonances and used to calculate the 14O(α,p) 17F reaction rate which is a measure of one of two breakout paths from the Hot CNO cycle. As a result, the new experimental information combined with previous experimental and theoretical information, provides a more accurate calculation of the reaction rate.
