Update: August 23, 2019

Scope of Disclosure

Conflicts of interest that authors are obligated to disclose are limited to matters in connection with companies or for-profit organizations connected with the submission content.

At the Time of Manuscript Submission

Authors of the society’s official journal the Journal of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Sciences or other publications must clearly indicate at the time of submission any conflicts of interest by means of Author Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships, which is prescribed in the Instructions to Authors.
