R1 Working Definition
Content, typically a file or collection of files, be it PDF or other data, provided as part of a Submission Unit.
Each document is assigned to one or more Context of Use categories, with each file component of a multiple-file document associated to a different associated Context of Use.
To express the life cycle of a document over time, a document may have one or more Document Relationships.
A collection (physical or logical) of data with the following characteristics: 1) Stewardship, 2) Potential for authentication, 3) Wholeness, 4) Human readability, 5) Persistence, 6) Global vs local context (the person that signs it is the author of all sections unless otherwise noted).
For example, regulatory processes require the submission of documents from the Applicant to the Regulatory Authority. These documents are varied in focus and are often defined by the field of study or by the regulatory application requirements of the region or Regulatory Authority (e.g., Integrated Summary of Safety, Pharmacokinetics Written Summary).
For example, Adverse Event Report, Expedited Adverse Event Report, IRB Report, X-Ray Report, Lab Summary Report, Autopsy Report, etc.
