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:
- Recruiting research participants over whom you have supervisory, evaluative, classroom-based, or other authority.
- Obtaining any direct financial and/or business benefits from the results of this study.
- Having non-legitimate professional interests in the research being conducted.
Please disclose any potential sources of conflict of interest in your application.
