AACB Copyright & Declaration of Interest

The author/s assigns copyright to the Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemists Inc., (AACB).
Statements contained therein are the responsibility of the author(s). The corresponding author should sign the Copyright Assignment form on behalf of all the authors of the abstract and return it at the time of abstract submission. The AACB reserves the copyright and renewal of all published material, as agreed in the assignment of copyright, and such material may not be reproduced in any form without the written permission of the AACB.

AACB Declaration of Interest

A conflict of interest exists where there is a divergence between the individual interests of a person and their professional obligation to the AACB such that an independent observer might reasonably question whether the professional actions or decisions of that person are influenced by their own interests.

Policy of the AACB on Conflict of Interest at Scientific Conferences and Educational Activities:
Presentations made at annual scientific conferences or other educational activities and articles published in publications under the control of the AACB shall also be covered by the general principles of conflict of interest such that all authors or presenters must disclose, on the Declaration of Interest form, any affiliation with or financial involvement in, or payments or other assistance in kind from, any organisation with direct interest in the subject matter. The reason for requesting disclosure of possible conflict of interest is not to censure or exclude speakers, but to inform the audience or reader so they may decide for themselves whether or not a presentation is biased. Information from the disclosure will be disclosed to participants but will not be used to exclude speakers or authors from an activity.
