This declaration is for potential authors of clinical editorials and education content, including clinical reviews, practice articles, minerva pictures, and endgames.
The BMJ is committed to ensuring the independence and integrity of our educational content. We strive to be transparent about any interests that our users, customers, and partners might want to know about, but in addition, for these particular articles, we do not allow contributions from authors with relevant commercial ties.
We are principally interested in authors’ financial ties with commercial companies across a number of different areas -- we recommend having information on the following to hand before you start completing this form: employment, board membership, consultancies, membership of speakers' bureaux, expert testimony, research grants/pending grants, lectures and other educational events, honoraria and expenses, development of educational material, patents, receipt of equipment or supplies and stock ownership.
When completing this online form, please declare all financial ties with commercial companies, whether or not you consider them relevant to the proposed article.
Please declare interests active in the past 36 months, or those that will become active in the next 12 months.
Non-commercial funding (such as payments from governmental or non-profit organisations, or charities) and any other relevant non-financial interests can be summarised in the text box at the end of the online form.
Please be aware that the form cannot be saved, must be completed in one go, and can take up to 30 minutes to complete. Please navigate using only on-screen instructions -- do not use the 'Forward'/'Back' buttons on your browser.
We may ask for further information in response to your declaration.
