Conflict-of-Interest Statement for Publications

The journal follows the rules approved by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) .

"Public confidence in the process of reviewing and reliability of published articles depends in part on how well considered a conflict of interest during record review and editorial decision making. A conflict of interest occurs when an author (authors, institution), reviewer or editor have financial or personal relationships  , which inadequately affect (violate) his actions (such relationships are also known as double obligations, interests or competing rights). These relationships can influence the decision.  This relationship is a real conflict of interest.   Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancy, shareholding, fees paid findings  expert) are conflicts of interest that are most easily identified and most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and the science itself. "

The editorial board requires all authors to report any financial conflicts of interest that could affect the results or interpretation of the manuscript.  More about conflict of interests is presented in the responsibilities of the editorial board, editors and editors, reviewers and authors in the section PUBLICATIJN ETHICS.
