Hello and welcome to our final newsletter of 2016. We would like to thank all of our contributors for making 2016 another successful and memorable year for PaPaS, and we look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.
The PaPaS office will be closed over the Christmas period from Thursday 22nd December reopening on Tuesday 3rd January. There will therefore be a slight delay in responding to submissions but we will get back to you as soon as we can in the new year.
As an author, editor, or peer referee of the Cochrane PaPaS Group you are automatically subscribed to our newsletter, which we hope will be of interest. You can easily unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of this page should you wish to.
