Cochrane's policy on conflict of interest is divided into two parts:
- Conflict of Interest Policy for Cochrane Groups
- Conflict of Interest Policy for Cochrane Library content (applies to all those involved in producing content for the Cochrane Library)
Which policy applies to an individual will depend on their role (i.e. whether their role involves the production of Cochrane Library content).
Please note that both policies may apply to an individual who holds multiple roles and a separate declaration must be submitted for each role.
Conflict of Interest declarations for Cochrane Groups and individuals
People holding certain roles within Cochrane are required to declare any potential conflicts of interest annually, and/or whenever their circumstances change. These declarations can be viewed below, by group. Members of the Governing Board declare all potential conflicts of interest for the previous ten years. For other roles the relevant period is three years.
Forms should be updated in January of each year. You can update your Conflict of Interest declarations in your Cochrane Account.
