The Open Humans invites people to create “projects” that interact with members – these interactions form the basis for the platform and ecosystem. Projects have broad potential uses: they can add new data, receive access to data, message members, and more. Projects may be run by anyone: citizen scientists, academic researchers, commercial entities, and more. Project APIs and features work immediately upon creation – but they will not be listed on the site’s main pages and have a cap of 20 members max.
A project must apply for “approval” to be listed and visible to all Open Humans members & to have their user cap removed.
This “Project Reviews” category encompasses the project reviews themselves (i.e. approval discussions), as well as discussion of the appropriate policies, guidelines, and procedures for projects and project review processes.
