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.

Review

  • 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)

  • Vote (for Public Comment) or Ballot (for Reviewed or Tested) to approve the document as fit for the next phase.

Approve (Modality Coordinating Committee)

  • Vote (for Public Comment) or Ballot (for Reviewed or Tested) to approve the document as fit for the next phase.
