Medical and Scientific Research

Because the publication of research is so important in the medical and scientific communities, conflicts of interest may interfere with the dissemination of accurate information. For example, a pharmaceutical company that is producing a drug may fund research that is the subject of an article that is published in a reputable journal. Due to the possibility that the company’s funding causes a conflict of interest with the person or entity conducting the research, most medical journals require researchers to disclose the sources of funding for their research.
