The same review and approval process occurs prior to publishing a Public Comment Profile, a Consensus Profile, a Technically Confirmed Profile, Claim Confirmed Profile or a Clinically Confirmed Profile. Just the criteria change.
Remember, this is the QA point. It doesn't have to be perfect. It does have to be good.
- Authors/Editor of the Profile request review for approval once they feel work on the current stage has been completed
- Biomarker Committee assigns/recruits reviewers for Profile sections
- Ideally each section should be covered by more than one reviewer
- Reviewing assignments can be divided up any way that is convenient
- It doesn't hurt to have some reviewers read through the profile in its entirety (finds inconsistencies/gaps)
- Reviewers check the Profile meets the criteria for the current stage as well as general clarity/quality
- Resolve any questions/comments/clarifications raised by the reviewers
Approve (Biomarker Committee)
- A Vote in committee (for Public Comment) or Ballot (for Consensus, Technically Confirmed, Claim Confirmed or Clinically Confirmed) to approve the document as fit for the next phase.
