Tools for Researchers

The International COVID-19 Data Alliance (ICODA) exists to enable and accelerate responsible research.  At its heart is the “Workbench” – a new data platform, provided by our alliance partner Aridhia Informatics that allows researchers to discover, access and analyse global multi-dimensional datasets while respecting confidentiality and privacy.

Program Policies

In order to provide clear and transparent ways of working, our policies address a number of key activities:

  • Researchers are required to be accredited: qualifications are checked, institutional affiliation and bona fide researcher status is established
  • Project proposals are reviewed for: scientific merit, patient benefit, appropriate statistical analysis plans, facilitation of high quality research, availability of relevant data that can answer the question proposed and whether participant privacy will be protected
  • Project proposals in lay form are published
  • All of our researchers sign up to our Alliance principles
  • Our Workbench has a Terms of Use agreement governing its usage
  • Our Publications policy and an Attribution policy guiding publication of research results will be added here soon
