Declaration of Conflict of Interest

The IJCP states that the authors avoid any possible conflict of interest. Public trust in the peer review process and the credibility of published articles depends in part on how well conflicts of interest are handled in recording, peer review, and editorial decision making. A conflict of interest occurs when an author (or author’s institution), reviewer, or editor has a financial or personal relationship that inappropriately influences their actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). These relationships differ from those with little potential to those with great potential to influence judgment, and not all relationships present a true conflict of interest. The potential for a conflict of interest may exist, whether or not the person that relationships affect his scientific understanding. Financial relationships (eg, employment, consultants, stock ownership, royalties, paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the author, and science itself. However, conflicts may arise for other reasons, such as personal relationships, competitions, and intellectual property.

Declaration of financial support

Beginning in 2014, the IJCP mandates that authors disclose financial support for research submitted for publication. This includes private contributions, grants from foundations, government organizations and companies.
