Declaration of interest
All authors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. Examples of potential competing interests include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Authors must disclose any interests in two places: 1. A summary declaration of interest statement in the title page file (if double anonymized) or the manuscript file (if single anonymized). If there are no interests to declare then please state this: ‘Declarations of interest: none’. 2. Detailed disclosures as part of a separate Declaration of Interest form, which forms part of the journal’s official records. It is important for potential interests to be declared in both places and that the information matches.

1. Elsevierが出版する雑誌には、a)雑誌によって査読がdouble anonymized(著者・査読者名が互いに伏せられる:二重匿名化)されている場合と、b)single anonymized(著者には査読者名が伏せられる)場合があります。
投稿する雑誌がどちらに該当するのかを確かめて、a)double anonymized の場合はCOIをタイトルページに、b)single anonymizedなら、本文中に記載します。 COIがない場合は ‘Declarations of interest: none’ と記載します。
[注意] 文頭(コロンの前)に、Authors must disclose any interests in two places: とあり、two places とあるので(タイトルページと本文)に書く著者がいらっしゃいますが、そういう意味ではありません.

2. にある “Separate Declaration of Interest form” は、別の書類の必要性を示唆しています。そしてその書類の情報は本文のものと一致していなければなりません。

COI がない場合、雑誌によって例文が異なります
