Conflicts of interest

Reliability of the articles is important and thus any conflict of interest on the side of the author, peer-reviewer or the editors should be avoided. Authors, peer-reviewers or editors should, whenever these are relevant to the content being considered or published, declare their interests and affiliations, so that the appropriate measures can be taken by the editorial board. If needed, a statement can be made in the journal that a certain person has a personal, financial, politica, academic or religious conflict of interest with the topic. One of the measures that the editorial board can take when there is a conflict in interests, is to change the persons who are involved in peer-reviewing the article. Authors can also be prevented to publish their article in the magazines. The existence of a conflict of interest should however not prevent someone of being included in the list of authors, if they qualify for authorship.
