The disclosure forms of all authors are available with the editors. A separate policy applies to Review Articles and editorials, which comment on published articles but do not present new research. JIACM expects that authors of such articles not to have any significant financial interest in any biomedical company relevant to the topics and products discussed in the article. It has been JIACM policy that none of it’s editors have any financial relationship with any biomedical company. "When authors submit a manuscript of any type or format they are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal relationships that might bias or be seen to bias their work. JIACM recommends use of the ICMJE  Form for Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest to facilitate and standardize authors’ disclosures. The same should be downloaded, filled, signed and appended to their submission."
