• Conflict of Interest Statement

    In the normal course of conducting a study there are associations that might prevent a researcher from reporting research with complete objectivity. This “conflict of interest”  describes a  situation in which financial or other personal considerations have the potential to compromise or bias professional judgment. Sources of potential conflict of interests include, but are not limited, to:  

    1. Recruiting research participants over whom you have supervisory, evaluative, classroom-based, or other authority.
    2. Obtaining any direct financial and/or business benefits from the results of this study.
    3. Having non-legitimate professional interests in the research being conducted. 

    Please disclose any potential sources of conflict of interest in your application.
