Clinical Manuscript Submission Checklist

All clinical research manuscript submissions are required to complete the manuscript checklist before submission.

This includes:

  • Running the manuscript through iThenticate software to check for potential plagiarism
  • Verifying the IRB approval status and consents for publication
  • Safely storing research data in our departmental shared drive or UTHealth REDCap database
  • Verifying original research data by 3 independent persons who are not the first or last author for the manuscript submission

The manuscript checklist is mandatory for researchers who receive departmental research support (time and/or funding).
