Report process

10/29/2015 – 11/6/2015: Display a rough outline and ask participants to comment

  • The topics under the headings are representative samples and not intended to be complete.
  • Is something missing?
  • Level of thematic finding, or specific recommendations
  • Comments about the structure.

11/7/2015 – 11/24/2015: Heikki and Boots fill in content, mostly outline form.

11/25/2015 – 12/18/2015: The participants are invited to contribute to the document by 

  • Improving existing content or adding to it

  • Contributing an entire section
  • Commenting on contributions by other participants

1/4/2016 – 1/16/2016: Heikki and Boots produce text for the final report

1/16/2016 – 1/29/2016: Participants are invited to contribute in the following ways

  • Comments and modification recommendations allowed
