Case Statements




Please make sure the group follows the new RDA Groups Policy, which came into effect on 1 April 2021. Please contact enquiries[at] if you have any questions.



This is the subgroup of the RDA-COVID-19 working group focusing on Community Participation.


Potential approach / timeline

  • Scoping document open for comments until *midnight UTC on April 14th*:

  • Develop a prioritised list of things to work on by Wednesday 15 April

  • Form c.6-7 teams of about 15 to get allocated to work on the topics

  • Each group will pick up a single task, in priority order, until we run out of groups  

  • Each group works on their topics for 5 days (ie: until Sunday)

  • On Monday, each team will be allocated a different topic for review over the next 2 days (ie: Monday & Tuesday)

  • Each group resumes work on their original topic afterwards, incorporating the review comments they have received from another group

  • Towards the later part of the 3 weeks, we should look to form a small editorial team, which will look to bring it all together into a coherent piece of work
