A conflict of interest of any form could be actual or potential. Therefore full disclosure of all relationships to the editor upon submission is mandatory.

If any conflict of interest of any form exists, this should be disclosed as appropriate under a separate sub-title in the manuscript that follows the methods section. Failure to disclose conflicts might lead to publication of a statement of error by our Editorial Board.
