Publications & Presentation Questions

Does the CLSA need to review my publications and presentations?

Final drafts of all manuscripts describing research using CLSA data and/or biospecimens must be sent to the CLSA for review at least 30 working days prior to anticipated submission to the journal. Abstracts, posters and presentations do not need to be submitted for review, but should include appropriate acknowledgements. Please review our Publication and Promotion Policy for CLSA Data Users for additional information.

Can I publish multiple peer-reviewed manuscripts based on my approved CLSA project?

As a publicly funded research platform, the CLSA encourages the dissemination of research findings from approved projects. The CLSA expects users to publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals. Multiple publications may be prepared based on a single approved project as long as the publications are directly linked to the objectives of the approved project.

Where do I find CLSA’s data availability statement?
