Electronic Pediatric Research in Office Settings (ePROS)
It is PROS policy that all PROS practitioners who complete data
collection for a study receive a copy of the manuscript(s) for
review shortly before submission for publication. Written feedback
to the authors is optional. All the
ePROS participants will be credited by practice in core papers submitted
for publication. Participation at this level does not require
any data analytic efforts, manuscript preparation or editing.
Practitioners who complete all data collection and who participate
in intermediate editing of manuscripts during their preparatory
phase will also receive formal manuscript acknowledgment, listing
and recognition at PROS meetings.
Practitioners who wish to participate as paper authors on peer-reviewed
manuscripts arising from the project will agree to the ePROS Publication Policy which recognizes
the network ownership of all data and employs the JAMA Criteria
for Authorship. In short, practitioners wishing to participate in
manuscript analyses and writing will be required to participate
in monthly conference calls for periods of four to six months, review
relevant literature and contribute to the writing of the papers
derived from the data.
Individuals may wish to play a leadership role on one of the
Topic Teams or alternatively to provide practitioner feedback
to one of the Teams at this level. Subsequent results may be presented
by practitioners at national or regional meetings or published
in peer-reviewed journals.
For more information on the PROS Review Policy or authorship opportunities,
please contact the PROS central office at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 800/433-9016, extension 4290.
