Conflicts of Interest

A potential conflict of interest may arise whenever there is anything that interferes, or could reasonably be taken to interfere, with the full, objective and unbiased presentation, peer review, editorial decision-making or publication of an article. The disclosure of potential conflicts of interest with respect to manuscripts submitted to Organon F is obligatory for authors, reviewers and editors.

When submitting their manuscripts, authors are required to disclose:

  1. the names of all funding sources of the research reported in the manuscript (such as providers of research grants, travel grants, etc.)
  2. the names of all individuals not acting as co-authors who were in any case involved in the research reported in the manuscript or who acted as consultants with respect to the manuscript or its predecessor;
  3. whether they were or currently are in a close personal relationship (spouse, family member, supervisor, etc.) with a member (or members) of the editorial board or advisory board;
  4. whether they have served or currently serve on the editorial board of Organon F;
  5. any other source they may deem to lead to a potential conflict of interest.

When considering invitations to review manuscripts, reviewers are required to disclose:

  1. whether they have already reviewed the manuscript or its purported predecessor for another journal or publisher;
  2. whether they were involved in the research reported in the manuscript;
  3. whether they are in a close personal relationship (spouse, family member, supervisor, etc.) with the author(s);
  4. whether they are positive about the authorship of the manuscript regardless of close personal relationships;
  5. whether they feel ideological, ethical or other biases with respect to any part of the content of the manuscript;
  6. any other source they might deem to lead to a potential conflict of interest.

When making decisions with respect to manuscripts, the editors are required to disclose:

  1. whether they were or currently are in a close personal relationship (spouse, family member, supervisor, etc.) with the author(s) of the manuscript or the reviewer(s) of the manuscript;
  2. whether they were involved in the research reported in the manuscript or acted as a consultant with respect to the manuscript or its predecessor;
  3. whether they recently were or currently are collaborating with an author of the manuscript on joint research or a joint publication;
  4. whether they recently were or currently are working at the same institution as the author(s) of the manuscript;
  5. whether they feel ideological, ethical or other biases with respect to any part of the content of the manuscript;
  6. any other ground that might be deemed to lead to a potential conflict of interest.

Editors must take into account all disclosed potential conflicts of interest and act so as to prevent any harms that might result from a potential conflict of interest. For example, editors cannot invite reviewers that might have a potential conflict of interest with respect to a manuscript. Similarly, editors that might have a potential conflict of interest with respect to a manuscript are excluded from making any decisions regarding the manuscript.
