All protocols are peer reviewed and verified in a laboratory prior to endorsement as an NDP. NDPs are then reviewed every 5 years for currency and accuracy. Details of the process can be found in Reference Standard 3. All NDPs now have a citable ISBN number. Authors and reviewers are included.
NDPs now include a section in the Appendix on diagnostics for surveillance (“Section 9”). New protocols will preferably have this included when they are developed. All current NDPs, and those in final stages of development need this section to be included.
To develop a new protocol, or section 9 of a current protocol, the format outlined in Reference Standard 2 must be followed.
Limited funding is available to undertake reviews and develop protocols, funded by DAWR through SARDI. For more information contact Barbara Hall (Barbara.firstname.lastname@example.org). Priority will be given to protocols for pests on the National Priority Plant Pest list, followed by those on industry high priority pests lists (see “cat” column in tables). Other EPPs will be considered depending on funding.
If you wish to complete a review or develop a protocol, please contact the SPHD Secretariat (email@example.com) with details by COB 9 June 2017. As an author or reviewer, you should have recognised subject matter expertise. Combining a review or protocol development with a laboratory residential or industry-funded research is encouraged. Protocols can be developed for singles pests or groups of pests.
