Scientific research has diverse implications of a personal and institutional nature; these implications may result in a conflict of interest. One of the products of scientific research that expresses this problem to a great extent is the communication of its results through scientific articles.

In this context, and at all times during their actions, the CORI coordinator, the editors-in-chief, the members of each of the editorial boards, authors, technical reviewers, referees, and all personnel involved in the editorial process must declare possible conflicts of interest and excuse themselves from participating in the process.

Conflicts of interest may have a different origin or nature, whether they be a matter of consanguineous or political kinship, economic-financial ties, political, religious and cultural motives, professional jealousy, etc.

Our journals focus their efforts on complying with institutional rules governing conflicts of interest, and, where appropriate, national and international conflict of interest standards. Authors must disclose whether private companies have provided them with any economic-financial support, infrastructure and/or biological material. They must declare that any mention of trademarks does not imply any recommendation (Conflict of Interest Declaration Letter).

If a conflict of interest is detected or arises, it will be addressed in accordance with the General Guidelines for the Editorial Management of the Institutional Journals of Autonomous Chapingo University and the Manual of Good Publishing Practices.
