I am hired by a private company to plan an integrated pest control management programme, and they wish to publish the result IF the outcome is good. However, since I am hire by them to conduct the experiment, and i am currently not attached to any research lab or university (since I've graduated), this imo would be a great conflict of interest. Will this affect the chances of this study getting published? And, can we published it since because the PI (which is me) is not of any research lab?? IF it would affect the publication, what can we do to prevent that before we carry out the experiment? Finding a PI with academic/research background?
