We want to share a new project we’re running in coming months: Keating Memorial Self Research – an invitation to collaborate in self-research!
We’re inviting people to share their ideas about self-research projects – questions they have, and potential approaches – and provide support for each other in our efforts.
Doing this in a group means you can get help when you’re stuck! This is an opportunity to try self-research for the first time – or to pursue a project you already have – by doing it with a small group of people who have diverse skills, lots of experience, and a desire to support you.
- Join the Keating Memorial Self Research activity on Open Humans
We’ll use this to send updates and reminders about upcoming stuff.
- Log in to our Self-Research Forum
- Post something:
… a self-research project you might want to do, a project you’re currently working on, something you already did, or just introduce yourself – say hi!
Anybody can do self-research! It can range from structured journaling to rigorous N-of-1 studies. It’s about you – and it can be about nearly anything. From introspection to data analysis, self-research can help people find what habits work for them, manage chronic conditions, and learn more about themselves.
Our goal is to start in February and to have completed our projects by July. What we learn will serve as a celebration in memory of Steven Keating, an inspiring advocate for patient data access. You can read extended details about this effort on our site (including more about Steven, our timeline, and calendar of events).
