Conflict of Interest

  • A potential conflict of interest exists when professional judgment concerning a primary interest, such as the validity of research, may be at risk of being unduly influenced by a secondary interest, such as financial gain or career advancement. Authors must disclose their/their institutions’ financial, personal, political, or academic relationships and activities that could influence their work, or that could be perceived by others as influencing their work.
