Disclosure of interests and funding
Interests which should be declared are situations that could be perceived to exert an undue influence on the presentation, review or publication of a piece of work. These may be financial, non-financial, professional, contractual or personal in nature. Interests declared do not necessarily mean that an author’s work has been compromised. All authors must include a declaration of interest in accordance with this journal's author instructions. This declaration will be subject to editorial review and may be published in the article.
Peer reviewers are expected to declare any interests arising at any point during the peer review process. The editor will review the interest and work with the reviewer to mitigate this interest. Where a reviewer’s interest is too significant to mitigate, the reviewer should recuse themselves from reviewing. See Ethics in Peer Review for further information.
Editors are responsible for declaring any interests, whether they apply to individual articles or to their position as an editor of this journal, and recusing themselves as appropriate.
Anyone who suspects an undisclosed interest regarding a work published or under consideration in this journal should inform the relevant editor or email email@example.com.
