B - Conflicts of interest in high-impact biomedical journals

Bosch X, Pericas JM, Hernández C, et al. Financial, nonfinancial and editors' conflicts of interest in high-impact biomedical journals. European Journal of Clinical Investigation 2013;43(7):660-667
(doi: 10.1111/eci.2013.43.issue-7/issuetoc)

This study aimed to assess financial, nonfinancial and editors' conflicts of interest (COI) disclosure policies among high-impact biomedical journals. The authors conducted a cross-sectional study of 399 journals and collected information relevant to the disclosure available on journal websites. Results showed that authors' financial COI disclosures were required by about 90% of journals, and that editors are increasingly concerned about nonfinancial competing interests.
