We are delighted that the covidpreprints.com project was selected for the 2020 eLife Innovation Sprint.
The team at the Sprint, which will be lead by Gautam Dey, Jonny Coates and Zhang-He Goh, is looking for the help of software developers and data scientists to give advice on how to efficiently extract and collate data across different platforms, and user interface designers to help enhance the interactive capability of the timeline – the main feature of the covidpreprints.com website.
In addition, the team would also greatly benefit from in-depth testing by community members, Community Ambassadors, and Community Leaders, and are planning to solicit advice on improving their communication and dissemination strategy to establish the site as a key central resource.
