Conflicts of Interest

In accordance with the policies of The Royal Australasian College of Physicians, the Internal Medicine Journal requires that all authors disclose any potential financial or other conflict of interest before a paper is published. A modified Conflict of Interest form has been adapted from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) for the Internal Medicine Journal.

Each author should liaise with the corresponding author regarding the above. The corresponding author is responsible for submitting a single ICMJE form on behalf of all authors for a paper.

Publication of articles cannot proceed until the disclosure form has been completed.
