Epiverse Values-Based Approach to Open Source Ecosystems

This project has developed a values-based open source implementation and assessment program, crucial to developing a trustworthy data analysis ecosystem. While building standardized, easily accessible epidemiological software tools, Epiverse will be applying this values-based framework to metrics gauging the initiative’s success.

Project Goals
  • Formally define values that will inform the metrics for gauging the initiative’s collective success
  • Build metrics according to these values, taking care to incorporate both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ measures
  • Embody our core values in discussions, communications, and documentation -Review the values as our community grows, capturing new insights and wider perspectives, and their continuing relevance
  • Record the procedures and outcomes, contributing to Best Practices
