<Proposed Update>
Prior to publishing a Public Comment Profile, a Consensus Profile, a Technically Confirmed Profile, Claim Confirmed Profile or a Clinically Confirmed Profile:
* The review and approval process is the same
* '''[[QIBA Profile Stages|The criteria differ depending on the stage]]'''
Remember, this is the QA point.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  '''It does have to be good'''.
==Review (Biomarker Committee)==
The following review process is not required but is strongly recommended.
* Authors/Editor of the Profile request content review 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 is helpful to have some reviewers read through the profile in its entirety (finds inconsistencies/gaps)
* Reviewers check the Profile meets the '''[[QIBA Profile Stages|criteria for the stage]]''' as well as general clarity/quality
** A two week window for the reviewers to do their work is suggested
* Reviewers report back to the Biomarker Committee
* The Authors and Biomarker Committee resolve any questions/comments/clarifications raised by the reviewers
==Approve (Biomarker Committee)==
* The Secretariat circulates a '''[[Balloting Process|Ballot]]''' asking Biomarker Committee members to approve that the content of the Profile meets the '''[[QIBA Profile Stages|criteria for the stage]]'''
** Generally the ballot period should be 2-4 weeks to allow time to review the full Profile text
** In the case of approving to publish for Public Comment, it is acceptable to instead hold a vote during a committee meeting.
==Approve (Modality Coordinating Committee)==
* The Biomarker Committee provides the details of the ballot (highlighting any unresolved ballot comments) and requests approval to publish from the Coordinating Committee
** Note that some Coordinating Committees only meet once every several months so the Biomarker Committee is advised to check on that to avoid missing a window
* The Coordinating Committee puts the approval question on the agenda for a [[Voting Privileges|Vote]] in committee at an upcoming meeting.
** Since there is a lengthy document involved, the agenda notification should be circulated at least 2 weeks before the meeting.
** <Add note that the CC may choose to do a ballot if that would be faster than waiting for the next meeting>
