Conflict of Interest

Journal policy requires that all authors of research papers, Reviews, MiniReviews, Commentaries, Correspondence, and Responses complete a Conflict of Interest disclosure form, which will be provided to authors when the manuscript is provisionally accepted. Potential Editorialists will be required to complete a Conflict of Interest disclosure form at invitation. Invitations may be withdrawn if the Editorial Board decides that potential conflicts are substantial. Authors will be asked to disclose: 1) any financial interest in or arrangement with a company whose product was used in a study or is referred to in a Review, MiniReview, opinion piece, or letter, 2) any financial interest in or arrangement with a competing company, and 3) any other financial connections, direct or indirect, or other situations that might raise the question of bias in the work reported or the conclusions, implications, or opinions stated—including pertinent commercial or other sources of funding for the individual author(s) or for the associated department(s) or organization(s), personal relationships, or direct academic competition. If the manuscript is published, such information may be communicated in a note following the text and references.

Open Access

Authors of Articles, Brief Communications, Reviews, MiniReviews, and Commentaries in the Journal have the option to publish their paper under the Oxford Open initiative; whereby, for a charge, their paper will be made freely available online immediately upon publication. After your manuscript is accepted the corresponding author will be required to accept a mandatory licence to publish agreement. As part of the licensing process you will be asked to indicate whether or not you wish to pay for open access. If you do not select the open access option, your paper will be published with standard subscription-based access and you will not be charged.
