Collaborate with Us
The NA-ACCORD welcomes all who are interested to participate in research.
- Getting started
Have a research question? Start by reading the NA-ACCORD’s Collaboration Polices and an overview of the steps required in our proposal development process. Then, complete the NA-ACCORD Concept Sheet to submit your idea for approval. You may find our list of Available Data Elelments helpful in drafting your Concept Sheet.
- Concept Sheet approval process
Your Concept Sheet will be reviewed by:
- The appropriate NA-ACCORD Working Group
- The NA-ACCORD Executive Committee
- The NA-ACCORD Steering Committee
Overall, as of July 1, 2016, the NA-ACCORD has received a total of 79 Concept Sheets, of which 95% have been approved.
- Analyses and creating your scientific product
Once approved by all three grops listed in step 2, the analyses will be conducted by the Epidemiology/Biostatistics Core. An in-depth discussion of these options for analyses will occur during the review process of your Concept Sheet.
NA-ACCORD investigators who are interested in participating in your research will volunteer to join your Writing Group. You will utilize your writing group as potential co-authors for the scientific product that results from your research. The Writing Group is a valuable asset that allows access to a number of established HIV investigators in the US and Canada.
- Publication or presentation of your scientific product
Once completed, your scientific product will be reviewed by the Steering Committee prior to making it public. If the product is a manuscript, please follow the Manuscript Checklist. Assistance is provided for completion of the Acknowledgements section.
