Wikipedia+Yelp for Covid Trials (already running, help curate+)
About the Project
Crowd sourced clinical trial information about COVID-19 trials, to make finding relevant vaccine and treatment trials faster. ClinWiki is a nonprofit, open source web-based clinical trial platform, in which additional trial information is crowd sourced. Our data is pulled from clinicaltrials.gov and updated nightly.
We have created the site https://covid.clinwiki.org to track all COVID-19 relevant observational and interventional trials. We have also created workflows to add keywords to the trials, as well as a second workflow to edit the wiki section and a third workflow for reviewing trials.
Data Curation volunteers - ideal participants have some bio/med/clinical trial knowledge but many levels of participation are possible.
"Workflows" are a list of focused tasks that the community needs to work through to make the trial curation complete and more useful for searchers. We have 3 workflows planned:
Workflow 1: Adding keywords and descriptors to the trial using tagging
Workflow 2: editing of the Wiki section to make the lay summary and trial information easier to understand and adding links/references to the study rationale, science, media.
Workflow 3: Add a review of the trial to provide feedback based on scientific judgment and relative potential benefits and risks of the trial.
