Policies on Conflict of Interest, Human and Animal rights, and Informed Consent


If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript. If the work involves the use of animal or human subjects, the author should ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines and that the appropriate institutional committees has approved them. Authors should include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained for experimentation with human subjects. The privacy rights of human subjects must always be observed.
Conflicts of interest comprise those which may not be fully apparent and which may influence the judgment of author, reviewers, and editors.
They have been described as those which, when revealed later,would make a reasonable reader feel misled or deceived.
They may be personal, commercial, political, academic or financial. “Financial” interests may include employment, research funding, stock or share ownership, payment for lectures or travel, consultancies and company support for staff.


Action


  1. Such interests, where relevant, must be declared to editors by researchers, authors, and reviewers.

  2. Editors should also disclose relevant conflicts of interest to their readers. If in doubt, disclose. Sometimes editors may need to withdraw from the review and selection process for the relevant submission.
