Proposals for manuscripts and abstracts must be submitted via an online form, located at Publications → Submit Proposal for Manuscript or Publication and Publications → Submit Proposal for Abstract or Presentation.  Instructions for using the online form can be found at Publications  → Policies and Forms  → Instructions for Submitting a Manuscript or Abstract Proposal. The GIC will monitor submissions and notify the Publications and Presentations Committee (PPC) of new proposals for review. The PPC will assign reviewers, discuss reviews, vote on approval, make scientific and analytic recommendations, and establish any necessary priorities needed at the GIC to process and/or analyze the data.

After a proposal is approved, a writing group will be finalized by the PPC with the advice of the proposer. All members of the writing group should review and approve the final manuscript draft before its submission to the PPC. The lead author should submit the final draft manuscript for review via the online Draft Manuscript Submission form located in My SPIROMICS Work below the SPIROMICS logo. Two reviewers are assigned by the PPC to ensure the SPIROMICS data are accurately represented. The lead author must also provide quarterly status updates after the manuscript proposal is approved until it has been published.
