Publications Proposal Submission

Any use of consortium-wide data in publications, presentations, and grant proposals must go through an approval process to ensure fairness and prevent overlap of efforts within the DPC. Briefly, prospective authors submit proposals to the PPsC for vetting and approval.

If approved, the CEC Data Coordination Core provides cleaned, de-identified data through a secure portal as described in the Data Sharing Agreement. The timeline for providing the data depends on the extent of the request, and teams are advised to consider this factor when developing data requests and publication timelines.

Prior to beginning a proposal, please review the Diversity Program Consortium Guidelines for Publications, Presentations and the Public Release of Consortium-Wide Data for complete information required for specific products. For questions about the proposal submission process, please contact us at
