This new grant builds on the previous SHARE project and is headed by Bright Outcome and funded by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). It includes support from ARG Scientific Director and Senior Scientist Thomas K. Greenfield, PhD, and team. Together, they will develop and validate the Share HumAn REsearch (SHARE) platform to address the unmet need for assisting alcohol researchers with the submission of study data to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Data Archive (NIAAADA).
The project is in response to a new data-sharing policy released in July 2019 that requires all NIAAA grant applications involving human subjects to include plans for the submission of study data.
Phase II aims include:
- Platform and measure development. In Phase II we will continue using a user-centric design process and the latest e-technologies to develop SHARE, and we will extend to 200 measures in both English and Spanish (when available).
- Pilot evaluation. There will be 4 NIAAADA submission waves during the two-year Phase II period. We plan to align both Aim 1 and Aim 2 activities to these 4 submission waves and recruit five projects in each wave to compare the performance of SHARE vs. NDA. A total of 20 pilot projects will be recruited and randomized to use either SHARE or NDA for NIAAADA submission. The time and cost for data preparation and submission will be tracked, and the accuracy of submitted data assessed. We hypothesize that compared to NDA, SHARE will perform significantly better in terms of reduced time and cost improved data accuracy.
