Dear Members of the Community:

The editors of several major journals on Tuesday announced that 
all journals published by members of the International Committee 
of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) will now use an identical 
financial disclosure form. The form and instructions are being 
placed in the public domain (see link below) and other journals 
are being urged to adopt this reporting format.

An editorial making the announcement was published simultaneously 
in the journals of the ICMJE. The editorial recognizes that the 
disclosure form may be implemented differently based on journal 
and author needs (for example, some journals may request the form 
at the time of submission and others later in the editorial 

The journals using the new form include the New England Journal 
of Medicine, Lancet, JAMA, the Annals of Internal Medicine, BMJ, 
and others.
