In the latest issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, the journal is publishing a collection of articles addressing conflicts of interest (COI)—specifically in regard to two association committees updating guidelines for high cholesterol and hepatitis C. Where does your opinion on COI lie?

Majority have disclosed COI
Minority fail to disclose COI
