degree to which exposure can be determined, both qualitatively and quantitatively, by this methodology; the details of the validation studies performed, including both methods and results; and a description of how important confounding variables will be evaluated.

The committee encourages the dissemination of scholarly findings resulting from conduct of the research and encourages investigators to disseminate their findings through publication in peer-reviewed journals.
