Ana Marušić, Igor Rudan, and Harry Campbell

As the editors of the Journal of Global Health, we are committed to ensuring that all processes during the publication of articles in our journal have the same level of transparency and responsibility. As we expect from our authors and reviewers to declare their possible conflicts of interest in relation to the manuscript under consideration for publication in the journal, we also need to declare our commitments and relations that may influence the editorial review process. When one of the decision-making editors submits an article to the Journal, it is reviewed independently from the editor, who has no access to or influence on the review process and editorial decision-making. This is always indicated in the Competing Interests declaration at the end of the published article.

As the next step in increasing the transparency of the editorial conflicts of interest [1] and in order to be compliant with the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals [2], we declare the following conflicts of interest for the current year:
