I am excited to announce that there is now a working prototype for an online, interactive implementation of my Accumulating Evidence and Research Organization (AERO) graph over at PortalResearch.org (here’s a link to the original methods paper). The goal of this tool is to allow many different research stakeholders (e.g., regulators, ethics committees, patients) to more effectively communicate about the total state of evidence in a given scientific domain and then make more informed decisions on the basis of that evidence. You can check it out here!
