User Story Collection Form

Since the Collaborative Archive & Data Research Environment (CADRE) in currently in development, we want to hear what you need from the platform. Our open and ongoing call for user stories is your opportunity to tell us how we can create a platform that better meets your research needs.

A user story simply includes what platform functionalities you may require as a researcher and the high-level goals you wish to achieve with CADRE. At this stage, a user story could range from specific interface design to general computational environment needs. Feel free to include information about the scientific challenges that our platform will help you address.

Some user story examples include:

"As a coordinator of multiple research teams, I need the functionality to run code examples with associated data on a cloud vendor with our own credits so that collaborators from different institutions can reproduce the result. This will greatly facilitate our research collaborations, making it possible to conduct a study on XXX that was previously impossible."


"As a bibliometric researcher with a focus in biomedical literature, I support the inclusion of the PubMed/MEDLINE dataset. I also want an unifying query data extractor into XXX format so that I can run my model on different data sources without worrying about different file structures. My model is built to captures the XXX. Being able to utilize both the PubMed and Web of Science data will help comparing XXX."

Use the form below to send us a user story. Submit as many user stories as you want -- no story is too trivial and we will take all stories into serious consideration as we continue to develop the CADRE platform.
