Competing interests

AD ALTA requires that all authors, peer reviewers and editors disclose all potential conflicts of interests.

AD ALTA requires that all authors, peer reviewers and editor disclose all potential conflicts of interests.

Editor and reviewers are also required to declare any competing interests and will be excluded from the peer review process if a competing interest exists.

Editors-in-Chief must declare any financial and/or personal conflict of interest for each submitted manuscript, and decisions on manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest will be made by another editor. The Editor-in-Chief is sent conflict of interest forms for every author on the paper he/she is reviewing.

The author(s) of a manuscript submitted to AD ALTA are required to complete a declaration of competing interest for any commercial associations or financial interests held by the author or immediate members of the author's family, which might be construed as posing a conflict of interest, including but not limited to consultancies, employment, expert testimony, honoraria, retainers, stock holdings or options, and membership on boards of for-profit organizations with a financial interest in the article. All competing interests will be listed in the declarations at the end of the article.

The authors should consider the following questions when completing their competing interest declaration:

Financial competing interests

  • In the past three years have they received any funding from an organization that may have a financial interest in the manuscript?
  • Do they hold any stock holdings or options in an organization that may have financial interest in the publication of this manuscript?
  • Does the content of the manuscript relate to any patents they hold or are they currently applying for?
  • Have they received any funding or salary from an organization that holds or has applied for patents relating to the content of the manuscript?
  • Do they have any other financial competing interests?

Non-financial competing interests

Are there any non-financial competing interests to declare in relation to the manuscript? Examples of non-financial competing interests include family associations, political, religious, academic or any other.

If the authors are unsure as to whether they, or one their co-authors, has a competing interest, they should discuss this with the editor.
