Policies on Data Analysis, Publications, and Presentations

National Dental PBRN Data Analysis, Publications, and Presentations Policies. The first version of these policies (more than 90% of the current document) was approved in December 2006.

What is "The National Dental PBRN Collaborative Group"?

The National Dental PBRN Collaborative Group is the collective author on National Dental PBRN publications that comprises co-authors who have had a significant role in the work. All National Dental PBRN practitioner, faculty, and staff personnel involved with data collection, study design, field testing or other significant aspects of the study, and who are not a named author, are acknowledged collectively as the last author the "National Dental PBRN Collaborative Group". The use of "collective author" or "corporate author" investigator groups is widely accepted. For example, if one goes to PubMed at and selects "Author - Corporate" in the "Search Field Tags" pull-down menu, and then searches for the terms [Study Group[Corporate Author] OR Investigator Group[Corporate Author] OR Collaborative Group[Corporate Author]] as the named author in the Search field at the top of the page, then one will identify thousands of publications from a wide range of journals and scientific disciplines.
