SRF Voluntary Disclosure Policy for Contributors
To promote openness and integrity of scientific information on the SRF web site by giving authors and commentators an opportunity to disclose potential conflicts of interest, financial interests, or lack thereof.
Who will be asked to disclose?
Contributors who post comments, texts, data and other editorial content on the web site will be invited to fill out a disclosure form attached to their online member data. The disclosure is not mandatory.
This form allows members to disclose any competing financial interests that, through their potential influence on behavior or content or from perception of such potential influences, could undermine the objectivity, integrity or perceived value of a posting on the SRF website. For practical definitions of competing financial interests see Nature's web site.
Members have the option to fill out a form in their member profile. Disclosure is voluntary and information can be updated at any time.
If you have further questions, please contact Hakon Heimer, Executive Editor.
