The Biostatistics Consulting Service will no longer clean data for any investigator for free. The BCS has outlined a specific set of criteria in which data should be brought to us.
In section 30.3 of your IRB SMARTFORM, mention that your analysis will be performed by the BCS.
Where meaningful intellectual contribution to the formulation of a research question or the analytic scheme for a research paper has been provided by the statistical consultant, it is hoped that Biostatistics personnel will be offered co-authorship on consequent publications and presentations (though this is not a requirement).
End of project requirements:
Please notify us of any abstracts, posters, papers, or grant submissions resulting from this work. We also ask that for any publication you comply with the NIH Public Access Policy and apply for a PMCID number. Papers with such numbers, which are essentially automatically given for most publications, allow us to obtain full credit with NIH for our collaborative work. We can help you with this number should you need assistance.
