Ethics and Publication Malpractice

Authors will be asked to provide a conflict of interest statement during the submission process. Submitting authors should ensure they liaise with all co-authors to confirm agreement with the final statement.

The journal requires that all authors disclose any potential conflict of interest. Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise that might be perceived as influencing author's objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. These must be disclosed when directly relevant or directly related to the work that the authors describe in their manuscript. Potential sources of conflict of interest include, but are not limited to: patent or stock ownership, membership of a company board of directors, membership of an advisory board or committee for a company, and consultancy for or receipt of speaker's fees from a company. The existence of a conflict of interest does not preclude publication. If the authors have no conflict of interest to declare, they must also state this at submission. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to review this policy with all authors and collectively to disclose with the submission ALL pertinent commercial and other relationships.
