Conflict Of Interest Statement

Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author's institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). When there is some relationship between the authors and some public or private entity that could give rise to some conflict of interest, this possibility should be made known on the title page of the manuscript and in the covering letter of submission.

In case there is no conflict of interest, the author should state so (for example: “I declare that I do not have any commercial or associative interest that represents a conflict of interest in connection with the work submitted”).
