Here we outline the approach of The Journal of Pathology to the issue of conflict of interest. We aspire to have a fair and transparent review process where conflict of interest or prejudice does not influence the review and decision-making process, such that readers can be confident of the objectivity of peer-review and reliability of content. Transparency and openness from all involved is the cornerstone of this and our processes are intended to prevent, as far as is possible, financial, personal, intellectual, professional, political, religious, racial, gender-related or other conflicts of interest affecting our peer-review.
