Following acceptance of the pilot review, the review team must submit a progress report every six months, and a final report within 18 months. If a satisfactory progress report is not received the protocol will be removed from website and the review terminated.
Progress reports will identify review teams that may need further training and/or support from their local BEME International Collaborating Centre or an alternative source. They will also assist the BEME central support with the planning of peer review processes and editorial work and ensure the timely publication of accepted BEME review final reports.
The lead reviewer should send a brief progress report (one page of A4 is sufficient) on the review work to [email protected] . The report should include an estimated date of completion.
