What are the future phases?
While the first phase focuses on building this system to allow for better and more meaningful engagement with Cochrane, the latter phases will focus on using the data gathered about people’s activities and contributions to apply levels of membership in Cochrane. The Governing Board (formerly the Steering Group) has approved the concept of membership for those who have substantively contributed, and so the next step once we have captured data on people’s contributions will be to assess that data and decide on an appropriate cut-off point for what does or does not constitute a member.
The Board approved the Membership Thresholds paper in March 2017. The Cochrane membership scheme will launch in May 2017.
More pathways to membership will following in early 2018. If you have any questions about membership, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
