Review of the manuscript proposal
Suggestions from non-CHS auditors must be reviewed and actively participated by a sponsors. During semi-annual telephone conferences, the Publications & Presentations (P&P) Committee examines the suggestions. Typical application examination by the P&P + Steering Committee (CHS) takes 3-4 working days. Submission of a proposal for the P&P examination is scheduled for the first and third Tuesday of each year.
The manuscript proposal process: Choose your topic: Make sure that your subject can be edited using CHS information and does not conflict with other current or released CHS documents. You can find all of our accepted suggestions on our in-house website. When an intersecting proposed piece of printed material is presented but more than 2 years have passed since its first approvals, the typing group may wish to contribute or share the work.
In order to help you identify which CHS information is pertinent to your work, you can reference the length section information published on our intranet. Make your proposal: Make a short proposal in which you outline your proposed presentation using the online CHS manuscript proposal sheet.
It will allow your proposal to allow the committee to quickly identify the key elements of your document. Any proposal that is longer than this length is not checked. Please start by reading the CHS books on your subject and refer to them in your proposal. Send your proposal: Once the manuscript has been checked and approved by all co-authors, as well as your CHS sponsor, you should complete the manuscript proposal and hand it inline.
The P&P Committee review: Its immediate objective is to make sure that a clear and precise analytical blueprint is presented. The P&P Committee will also establish whether the manuscript submitted coincides with other documents that have been submitted or are in preparation. In the event of an overlapping, the reviewer may be asked to contribute to the proposal/manuscript.
Possible reviews will be sent to the group. Any proposal that is not adopted may be reviewed and retabled; this must be combined with a reply memorandum setting out how the Committee's main observations have been dealt with. Examination of the Steering Committee: After P&P approves the manuscript, the P&P coordinator forwards the manuscript proposal to the CHS Steering Committee for consideration and drafting of group proposals (if available).
After the Steering Committee (SC) has reviewed all of these, all of the remarks are passed to the writing group; if changes are necessary by the SC, they must be included, but the proposal does not need to be reviewed again by the P&P/SC. In the event that the writing group does not agree with the necessary amendments, the chair may either prepare amendments through the P&P coordinator on an informal basis until a trade-off is adopted, or file a motion for refutation in writing and ask for a reexamination of the Steering Committee.
Suggestions that have been significantly reworked in reaction to SC remarks should be upgraded for recording on-line. Local analysed scripts can begin as soon as the proposal has been endorsed by the P&P and Steering Committees and a DMDA (Data and Material Availability Agreement) has been submitted to the Coordination Centre, if necessary.
