Editorial Conflicts of Interest

Editors have been asked to disclose their financial interests or other relationships that could be viewed as potential conflicts of interest as they might relate to editorial judgements. The period covered extends to the 36 month period prior to 31 December 2013, and declarations are in accordance with recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journals Editors (ICMJE). Editorial practice is for Editors to recuse themselves from any decisions in which a conflict of interest exists or could be perceived to exist. Statements are provided both for decision editors of the journal and editorial staff.

Academic affiliations are for those additional to the principal institutions listed on the January 2014 masthead and on the journal website [] where any updates will be provided.

All Editors receive reimbursement of travelling expenses for attending up to two JCPP Editorial Board meetings each year and are offered a personal annual honorarium during their editorial term of office.
