Re: ClinicalTrial Schema

Hi Nolan

Just to add a few comments to my colleague’s Christian’s earlier email.

  *   By co-incidence, we were completing the revision of the ECRIN metadata schema this week. I have attached a document with the new version of the schema (v4) together with appendices that summarise the values used for the category questions. (The Zenodo reference has been updated as well). The changes are not huge but are summarised at<>. In particular with this revision we have tried to align the schema more closely with some of the other work in this area, for instance making use of the DUO classification of biomedical consents, and an emerging EOSC classification of document risk.
  *   The current metadata repository (MDR) is several months out of date as far as the data is concerned, though it still illustrates the principle of what we are trying to do.
  *   A new portal – more directly linked to the data source than the current one - is under development and we hope to have that live by October / November.
  *   If you would like any further details – including for instance how the data is structured internally in the database, or how we extract and aggregate the data, (the project wiki is out of date in this respect) please let me know.
