Why participate to the new Orphanet Curation Platform?
- The dedicated site for the new Orphanet Curation Platform (aka the Knowledge Management Platform) is https://curation.orphanet.org
- Presentation from the RD-ACTION Workshop (25th and 26th April 2017): Orphanet Knowledge Management System
- The Orphanet curation platform (OCP) is a community-driven knowledge curation platform for rare disorders based on Orphanet scientific content
- It allows users (the wider expert community) to propose corrections or modifications for each entry and to meet virtually.
- Changes validated in the OCP will be incorporated to the Orphanet database and ultimately to the Orphanet Rare Disease Ontology (ORDO).
- The OCP creates an interactive knowledge curation process that enables input of new knowledge in Orphanet by ‘expert-crowd sourcing’, significantly reducing the resource intense curation processes while maintaining curatorial control over the high quality of the Orphanet data.
