Authorship of a clinician
A clinician interested in a specific research project should contact the QPN coordinator and/or the principal investigator of the study in question. He will have to commit to:
- Giving feedback and comments about the study design
- Proofreading a version of the article
This clinician’s patients will be primarily, but not exclusively, contacted for this study.
Mentioning QPN clinicians
A researcher using the patient registry will need to mention “QPN clinicians” in:
- Acknowledgements when 1 to 9 participants have been recruited from the patient registry
- The list of authors when more than 10 participants have been recruited from the registry
N.B.: The “QPN clinicians” designation is an entity that provides access to the complete list of clinician contributing members of the network.
