Requirements of health policy and services journals for authors to disclose financial and non-financial conflicts of interest: a cross-sectional study
A majority of health policy and services journal policies required the disclosure of authors’ financial and non-financial COIs, but few required details on disclosed COIs. Health policy journals should provide specific definitions and instructions for disclosing non-financial COIs. A framework providing clear typology and operational definitions of the different types of COIs will facilitate both their disclosure by authors and reviewers and their assessment and management by the editorial team and the readers.
