This topic describes how to create a new study. You need to be logged in with administrator permissions.

Create the Study Container

First we create an empty container for the study data to live in. We recommend creating studies inside subfolders, not directly inside of projects.

  • Navigate to a project where you can create a subfolder.
  • Select (Admin) > Folder > Management. Click the button Create Subfolder.
    • Enter a Name for the study, choose the folder type Study, and click Next.
    • On the Users/Permissions page, click Finish. (You can configure permissions later by selecting (Admin) > Folder > Permissions.)

Create or Import the Study

You are now on the overview tab of your new study folder. You can either create a study from scratch, or import a pre-existing folder archive containing study objects.

Import a Folder Archive

Click Import Study to import a pre-existing folder archive that contains a study. It may have been previously exported, or created outside the system following specific guidelines. Learn more in:

Design a Vaccine Study

A vaccine study is specialized to collect data about specific vaccine protocols, associated immunogens, and adjuvants. A team can agree upon the necessary study elements in advance and design a study which can be used as a template to create additional studies with the same pre-defined study products, treatments, and expected schedule, if desired. This can be particularly helpful when your workflow includes study registration by another group after the study design is completed and approved.

Once you have created a study, whether directly or via import, you can standardize shared vaccine study features among multiple studies.
