The Research Data Alliance has published the first release of the RDA COVID-19 Working Group Recommendations and Guidelines, aimed at standardising the global sharing of COVID-19 research data.

The Research Data Alliance has published the first release of the RDA COVID-19 Working Group Recommendations and Guidelines These guidelines incorporate the work of 5 subgroups: Omics, Epidemiology, Clinical, Social Science, and Community, and high level commonalities have been identified at the start of the document.

The working group went from initial concept (as requested by the European Commission) through recruitment of volunteers to first release in 3 weeks, so this is a very early output, and subsequent releases are planned for this week and next. This first release has seen contributions from a 400+ cohort of global experts with expertise across a range of related domains.

In the spirit of the RDA community and its open process, the COVID-19 WG is now inviting feedback from RDA members, as well as the wider community. This feedback will inform the work and will be incorporated into the sub-group discussions, and the next set of writing sprints and releases. Links to comment are included on the release itself.
