Submitting a Declaration of interest form (for other contributors)

The following instructions apply to Declaration of Interest for Cochrane roles. See Declaration of Interest forms: instructions for authors if you are a Cochrane author and need to complete a Declaration of Interest for a Cochrane Review.

  1. Submit a Declaration of Interest form
  2. Update a Declaration of Interest form (forms should be updated in January of each year)
  3. Organisational Group Roles requiring a Declaration of Interest

People holding certain roles within Cochrane are required to submit a Declaration of Interest in January of each year.

Members of the Governing Board declare all potential conflicts of interest for the previous ten years. For other roles the relevant period is three years.

Completed forms are publicly available on Cochrane's organisational chart of Declarations of Interest. Submitted declarations can take up to 24 hours to update on the website.
