The National Center for Data to Health (CD2H) and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) are creating a centralized, secure portal for hosting row-level COVID-19 clinical data—called the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). This initiative is a partnership among several U.S. Department of Health & Human Services agencies, the Clinical and Translational Sciences (CTSA) Program, and several distributed clinical data networks. This cloud-based collaborative portal will allow for the development of machine learning and other informatics tools that require a large row-level dataset, and will be overseen by a data access committee. The portal will provide additional assets needed to rapidly develop the analytics that clinical centers and physicians need now. Learn more at https://covid.cd2h.org/.
To further support data discovery and collaborative efforts, this COVID-19 community was created to collect research resources and make them openly available. This repository community collects research outputs and information objects relevant to the N3C initiative and produced by and for CTSA Program hubs. Users are encouraged to upload their research objects into this collection to facilitate sharing and discovery of information.
Although Open Access articles and datasets are recommended, closed and restricted access materials are also accepted. All types of research outputs and information objects can be included in this repository community.
When depositing a resource that is linked to other resources (deposited in Zenodo or other repositories), please make sure that your record is linked to all the other related resources already available, in order to adhere to the FAIR principles of Open Science to maximize reusability.

Community structure and language modeled after openaire_eu community at https://zenodo.org/communities/covid-19
Curation of this community is coordinated by researchers and librarians working directly on the N3C team. Each time a user submits a record into the community, an email is sent to the curators so they can check the record and follow up if needed. Research outputs and information objects relevant to the N3C initiative and produced by and for CTSA Program hubs should be included in this community. Community curators are not able to edit records, therefore they may ask the corresponding authors to modify the record metadata when necessary, to provide the readers/users with more detailed information according to the FAIR principles of Open Science.
