Conflicts of Interest Policy

 

Aspects like financial interest, material gain or personal interest or any other similar interest may influence the manner in which a research work may be approached. If this influence exists, then there arises a conflict of interest. Throughout the editorial and peer review process there are many chances for existence of conflicts of interest from the point of view of authors, editors, and peer reviewers. All parties must voluntarily disclose any information regarding conflicts of interest so that the quality of the author’s works is not influenced or compromised.

 

Author's Conflict of Interest

The authors are asked to declare any influence, or be perceived to influence, their work as conflict of interest during the time of submission of the manuscript or during the processing or peer review process. This will ensure the declaration of conflicts of interest which does not exist at the time of submission but arises at a later stage. All the communication regarding this should be made by the Corresponding author. The declaration of conflict of Interest for research, review or case studies papers can be done by making a statement of declaration  in a separate paragraph in the manuscript.

 

For example:

“We declare that there is no conflict of interest over any financial or personal interests that would affect the validation of the work of the author”. The sentences can also be similar but should convey exactly the same meaning.If there is any existence of conflict of interest , it should be either communicated to the a editor before publishing or after publishing and necessary action would be taken accordingly.

The corresponding author can also declare similar conflict of interest paragraph "We declare the following conflicts of interests: Author ABC is a part-time paid consultant for XYZ Corporation. Author PQR is on the advisory board of RST Company and has received fees as an advisory board member."

 

Editor's Conflicts of Interest

Editors of the Journal are also bound by the Conflict of Interest policy of the Journal. They have to make a general declaration of conflict of interest if any at the time of assuming responsibility as the Editor and also specifically whenever a conflict arises during the review process of manuscripts. 

 

To avoid potential conflicts of interest that may arise in special cases like the Editor in Chief or one of the Editors submitting a manuscript for publication, the Journal ensures that the said manuscripts will be sent to an editor whose identity will not be revealed to the authors under consideration.

 

If the author of a manuscript is related to an editor personally or professionally the Journal will take care to send the manuscript to another advisory editorial board member to ensure blind peer review process.

 

Peer reviewer's Conflicts of Interest

The Peer reviewers are also required to declare the conflicts of interest, if any, while submitting the review comments, failing which the review done by the peer reviewer will become invalidated. Nevertheless, even in case of existence of a conflict of interest, if it is declared, then the review is validated.
