ERS short guidelines and short statements are designed to respond very quickly to the release of new evidence that could lead to marked changes in clinical practice. These documents should be concise, very focused and developed within a one-year timeframe.
ERS accepts applications for this all year. There is no deadline. To apply, you must complete the application form and associated documents in full – ensuring you read the guidance before you submit. If you have questions about this, please contact us.
Consult the ERJ Editorial on short guidelines.
ERS recommends the application of the same methodology for short guidelines and statements that is used for the Task Forces which are developed within a two-year timeframe. In case of doubt or question, the ERS in-house methodologist can be contacted.
