The Maelstrom Repository aims to leverage and facilitate the achievement of collaborative epidemiological research initiatives. The Repository is a standardized catalogue encompassing comprehensive information about epidemiological research networks, studies and the data they collect. It allows users to:
- Learn about existing Maelstrom partner networks and harmonization initiatives (see the Networks section);
- Identify studies making use of relevant designs and collecting data of interest for potential collaborations (see the Studies section);
- Have an overview of information collected across studies (see the Harmonization Potential section)
The repository also provides access to a Harmonization Methods Library, a list of reference papers and reports on approaches and methods used to retrospectively harmonize data developed in collaboration with the Integrative Analysis of Longitudinal Studies on Aging.
