Responding to the Pre-review


Pre-review comments are available in the "Review" feature in RMS. Researchers can respond to each comment directly and make revisions to the AUP based on the review comments.

An email will be sent to the LR (UCI email) indicating the AUP needs additional clarifications or revisions with a direct link to the protocol.
