UPICT publishes protocols in a standardized UPICT template.
A standard template has the advantages that:
- protocols can be compared more easily
- users know where to look for certain details
- implementers can find the material appropriate to them
- it is clear to protocol authors what topics/details should be addressed in a UPICT protocol
- it is clear when a topic/detail has not been addressed
Tips for Extracting Protocols into the UPICT Template
Mark-up a copy of your original document as you do the extraction.
- When you copy a chunk of text from your original, highlight it
- When you are "finished" extraction, you can check the un-highlighted text to see if you have missed migrating anything important
Consider extracting several related protocols in parallel.
- Take a single UPICT Template document and simultaneously extract several similar protocols into it putting material from different source protocols in different colors
- Then compare each of the different source paragraphs and use that to draft a consensus paragraph
- Once the text is stable, create copies of the document, each with just one of the source protocols
- The result is a UPICT document for each protocol and a UPICT document for the consensus protocol
- This approach allows you to batch process, to easily see the areas of agreement and divergence, and focuses consensus discussion on one issue at a time
