Conflict of Interest Policy

  • A conflict of interest can occur when there is a financial, commercial, legal, or professional relationship with other organizations, or with the people working with, that could influence research.
  • You can declare the conflict of interest on your cover letter or on the manuscript submission form in the journal’s online peer-review system.
  • If necessary, please describe any potential conflicts of interest in a covering letter. In addition, you should fully acknowledge all funding sources supporting the work.
