This extension adds funding and conflict-of-interest information to the abstract page of Pubmed articles (when available)
This extension fetches conflict-of-interest and industry funding information from biomedical journal articles and places them at the top of abstracts within PubMed.
Currently works for open-access articles from PubMed Central, which covers “several million articles from several thousands of journals.” (We will be adding additional coverage and fixing bugs in coming weeks. Volunteers welcome!) If there are no funding or conflicts disclosures accessible for the abstract within PMC, the extension does not modify the PubMed page, so you might not notice any change.
