JAFIB-EP requires all authors to disclose any and all potential, perceived or actual conflicts of interest which may include but are not limited to specific financial interest, relationship and affiliations that are relevant to the topic(s) discussed in the manuscript that is been submitted. This can also include employment/affiliation, grants/funding, speaker agreement, consultant, honoraria, ownership of stock in the company, expert testimony, royalties, or patent received/pending.
This policy is not a deterrent for the authors from publishing their work. However, it is the responsibility of the journal to provide scientific integrity to the reviewers and readers. All disclosures will be published with the accepted article. If there are no conflicts disclosed, a statement to that effect will be published in the article.
Each manuscript can use initials for authors to detail the conflict-of-interest statement.
JAFIB-EP does not publish manuscripts funded by the tobacco industry.
