Conflict of Interests

All financial and non-financial competing interests must be declared in this section.

Authors of research articles should disclose at the time of submission any financial arrangement they may have with a company whose product is pertinent to the submitted manuscript or with a company making a competing product. Such information will be held in confidence while the paper is under review and will not influence the editorial decision, but if the article is accepted for publication, a disclosure will appear with the article. Because the essence of reviews and editorials is selection and interpretation of the literature, the Chronic Diseases Journal expects that authors of such articles will not have any significant financial interest in a company (or its competitor) that makes a product discussed in the article.
