The article reports on guidelines issued by the Association for Medical Ethics concerning ethical rules of financial disclosure. It states that the rules request all physicians and scientists to disclose the nature and amount of financial conflicting interest exceeding $500 per calendar year in all publications or presentations. The association contends that the transparency in financial activities will determine whether research findings have any measure of independent validity.
