When authors submit a manuscript, they should disclose any conflicts of interests, such as financial and personal relationships that might bias their work. To prevent ambiguity, authors must state explicitly whether potential conflicts do or do not exist.
Contributors who do not qualify as authors in terms of studying the data or developing the concepts, but have provided support should be listed in an Acknowledgements section.
