Manuscript Submission

Investigators planning to submit results of a study that utilizes data generated by DBPNet must have their manuscript or abstract approved by the DBPNet Dissemination Committee (DC) prior to submission.

The investigator should submit the manuscript or abstract to the Network Coordinating Center (NCC). The NCC will review the submission for appropriate authorship and acknowledgement and will send the item to the DC for review and to the HRSA/MCHB Project Officer for their information.  Abstracts and manuscripts will be reviewed by each individual member of the DC.  The DC is authorized to approve the manuscript or abstract on behalf of DBPNet and the HRSA/MCHB Project Officer on behalf of HRSA/MCHB. 

All abstracts and manuscripts must be submitted to the DC a minimum of three weeks before the deadline for the meeting (abstracts) or desired date of submission to a journal (manuscripts). Submitting authors are requested to notify the NCC of planned submissions four weeks in advance of a deadline so the DC can be alerted. Members of the DC and the HRSA Project Officer shall submit their individual decision to the NCC within two weeks of receipt of the submission.
