Dear Dr. Collins and Ms. Humphreys:

We write to urge the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to require disclosure of funding sources or other activities that could present a conflict of interest for all articles on PubMed, NLM’s free online search engine of more than 25 million article citations from more than 5,600 journals on health and medicine, and other databases of scientific papers that NLM indexes. This is a simple, commonsense measure that would significantly enhance transparency in the health sciences.
