Disclosure and conflicts of interest


Unpublished information disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by editors and editorial board members for their own scientific purposes without the authors’ explicit written consent of the author.

Privileged information or ideas obtained by editors and peer review as a result of handling the manuscript must be kept confidential and not used for their personal advantage. Editors will recuse themselves from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from collaborative, competitive, or other relationships/connections with any of the authors, institutions or companies related to the papers; instead, they will ask another member of the editorial board to handle the manuscript.
