We continue the practice of transparency of potential competing interests for us as editors of the Journal of Global Health, following the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals . 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 regularly 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.
We declare below the following conflicts of interest, in alphabetical order. We will regularly publish updated declarations when there is a change in editors’ activities and relationships.
