Author Affiliation and Disclosure

Journals require authors to provide information about their institutional affiliation, such as the university, government agency, or research facility where they work and conducted the research. Most journals also require authors to disclose sources of financial support for the study and any relationships with the potential of being perceived as a conflict of interest.

As you read, ask yourself

  • Where do the authors work? Where was the study conducted?
  • What was the source of funding?
  • Was the funding source a Federal Government grant?
  • Was the funding source an entity (such as a pharmaceutical company or organization) that has a strong interest in the outcomes?
