Writing framework/template

  1. Identify combination of junior and senior authors for introduction
  2. Divide analysis into sub-headings
    1. Assign combination of junior/senior authors to each sub-heading
    2. Each sub-heading group should provide details of methodology & discussion of results
  3. Bi-weekly updates/reports from each ‘section’ deposited to central writing depot
    1. Minimal subheading report should consistent of a skeleton outline of each subheading giving further sub-headings/groups, each expanded as writing progresses
  4. A core team of writing collaborators will pull together final manuscript by circulating and editing until all main authors are satisfied
  5. Draft is then circulated to relevant senior faculty for additional input
  6. New ‘final’ draft is then circulated to entire writing subgroup and then to collaborators for author approval and additional comments
