1) New studies can be initiated in the Velos eResearch application. New studies created in eResearch will be imported into PIMS overnight.
- Both PIMS and Velos eResearch will use a common process to generate new protocol numbers. So if you create multiple protocols in PIMS you may notice a gap in the protocol number if a study was also created in eResearch. Nightly the studies started in eResearch will be copied to PIMS filling any gaps in protocol numbers.
