News / NEW! Discussion document on handling competing interests

This guidance has been drafted following a COPE Discussion Forum (9 December 2015, http://bit.ly/1NxqEFy). The aim of the document is to further encourage discussion and to capture a record of the issues around competing interests — especially when they arise after publication — to help inform and progress the debate, and to firm up guidance where that is indicated.
