Advertising Policy

ISCP invites funding for its websites in the form of unrestricted educational grants. ISCP will create and maintain an editorial board for each supported medical website. The sponsor may suggest opinion leaders or content for consideration by the editorial board but not be allowed to directly influence the content or editorial board. Final selection of all information and analysis on the site is made by ISCP editorial board of each medical website.

To further our mission we accept advertising and sponsorship under strict conditions. Any advertisement we believe is incompatible with our objectives will be rejected. The presence of any advertisements or sponsors on our sites or on our newsletters does not imply any endorsement of the advertised product or sponsored Society. ISCP maintains a distinct separation between advertising/sponsored content and editorial content. All advertising content is clearly labeled and identified as such on ISCP sites. Sponsored areas of ISCP sites are identified as such, and the sponsoring organizations are identified.
