Conflict of Interest
Psychiatry and Clinical Psychopharmacology adopts WAME's definition http://www.wame.org/about/wame-editorial-on-coi which states that conflict of interest exists when a participant in the publication process (author, peer reviewer or editor) has a competing interest that could unduly influence (or be reasonably seen to do so) his or her responsibilities in the publication process (submission of manuscripts, peer review, editorial decisions, and communication between authors, reviewers and editors).
The types of competing interests that should be declared include financial ties, academic commitments, personal relationships, political or religious beleifs, and institutional affiliations.
The conflict of interest is to be acknowledged in the manuscrip in the section of declaration of interest.
The editor and the publisher do not guarantee or accept responsibility for the published features or definitions of commercial products. If there is direct or indirect grant support, it should be acknowledged in the section titled "declaration of interest" and should include the full name of the sponsor and grant number. Existence or lack of sponsorship of any kind as well as the type of sponsorship (consulting etc.) has to be acknowledged, as well.
