We are in the process of rolling out a soft launch of the RDA website, which includes a new member platform. Existing RDA members PLEASE REACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT using this link: Visitors may encounter functionality issues with group pages, navigation, missing content, broken links, etc. As you explore the new site, please provide your feedback using the UserSnap tool on the bottom right corner of each page. Thank you for your understanding and support as we work through all issues as quickly as possible. Stay updated about upcoming features and functionalities:


The commentary is progressing, and it looks like we will need at least one more meeting to get it finalized and in the required format for submission to Nature. Of note, a Correspondence submission only allows for 250 words, so the draft may have to be shortened significantly.
We are aiming for a meeting on Thursday; if interested in joining, please indicate your availability here:

Subject: [rdacovid19-coordination] Update on response to Nature commentary
Dear all,
The group has made tremendous progress on the response to the recent Nature article, and hopes to finalize it early next week. I’ve sent out an invitation for a writing sprint on Monday, 22 March at 11:00 UTC if you are able to join. Here is the link to the draft if you’d like to provide comments/suggestions:–b4gqU2wD7jSj2E8KVTCfLvsoQ4ai
Thanks again for all of your time and effort on this initiative, and have a great weekend.
