The Association of American Medical CollegesAmerican Society of Clinical OncologyCouncil of Medical Specialty SocietiesJAMA, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center hosted a symposium at the AAMC's headquarters on February 12, 2019 with leaders from across the biomedical research community to discuss harmonizing requirements for authors’ disclosures of their financial interests and relationships in journals.

Attendees outlined the actions needed to harmonize disclosures and how to build greater transparency and consistency around journal disclosure requirements. The symposium summary provides a high-level synopsis of the key themes discussed and the next steps proposed. The primary outcome was the establishment of three connected working groups (Relevancy, Uniform Disclosure Criteria, and Implementation and Principles of Accountability), tasked with developing principles and recommendations for implementation.

The host organizations are pleased to invite stakeholders to review the report, Harmonization of Financial Disclosure in Biomedical Journals: A Shared Responsibility .
