Published notes

[fixed, level 1 heading]

Published notes will appear in the review in the CDSR. They may include editorial notes and comments from the CRG, for example where issues highlighted by editors or referees are believed worthy of publication alongside the review. The author or source of these comments should be specified (e.g. from an editor or a referee).


Published notes must be completed for all withdrawn protocols and reviews, giving the reason for withdrawal. Only basic citation information, sources of support and published notes are published for withdrawn protocols and reviews.
