About the Project

Description

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.

How far along is it

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.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

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.
