Association for Medical Ethics

16 Aug, 2012

OA Publishing London has adopted the Ethical Rules of Disclosure of the Association for Medical Ethics for all its journals.

After consultation with our chief scientific and clinical advisors OA Publishing London has taken the unilateral action of becoming the first global publishing house to help address the perceived lack of disclosure in medicine. It is suggested that the precise amounts of money from industry received by those influencing medicine by their research and opinions are infrequently and incompletely revealed. It is felt that those holding certain positions in medicine should be expected to have limited or no financial interests. There is a paucity of explicit transparency which is strongly warranted for the sake of patient care and which should be held as the highest single priority.
