Supplements, and Other Funded Publications

Journals may choose to publish supplements, special issues, or similar publications that are funded by a third party (for example, a company, society, or charity). The journal will present readers with the names of the organizations that provided funding, and any conflict-of-interest statements.

The journal will not permit funding organizations to make decisions beyond which publications they choose to fund.

The editorial oversight of all publications is independent of the sponsor or advertiser, including the selection and appointment of Guest Editors for these supplements. The sponsor or advertiser will be prominently disclosed in the publication, including the role of the sponsor or advertiser. For all supplements published by Forum Multimedia Publishing, there will be transparent disclosure of the origin of the content and the role of editors, authors, sponsors, and advertisers and any conflicts of interest in relation to the supplement.
