Updates on Projects

Evidence Codes


  • Review RCA evidence code - Please can the groups listed below review their RCA annotations and decide if they'd still like to keep them and if RCA is still the appropriate evidence code?
    • Thank you to everyone who has reviewed their existing RCA annotations.
    • Many RCA annotations were removed, but some groups are keeping annotations from papers that use methodology consistent with the definition of RCA.
    • Since these annotations come from papers, the originally proposed one-year restriction does not make sense and will not be an annotation rule.
      • Please send Kimberly PMIDs for papers that were kept for use as examples in our evidence code documentation.
    • That said, periodic annotation review is always a good idea.
    • Remaining groups will be contacted individually.
