Conflict of interest declarations

Cochrane's policy on conflict of interest is divided into two parts: (1) policy for Cochrane Groups and individuals, (2) policy for Cochrane Reviews (included in the Cochrane Editorial and Publishing Policy Resource).

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.
