The Swedish COVID-19 & Pandemic Preparedness Data Portal was built to serve the community of researchers working on relevant topics and we welcome any contributions from the community or suggestions on how the Portal can help the community. Whenever there is anything that you would like to share with your colleagues, do not hesistate to share it through the Portal. We welcome suggestions for new information or edits in all sections as well as ideas for new sections that could be launched.
For example, you can suggest a dataset that should be covered in the data highlights section or even write one, you can suggest an available dataset that would be useful to others in the community, add information about your own or your colleague’s ongoing research project, share data from your project in a new dashboard, and so on.

The information for each section of the Portal is stored in a particular folder and needs to be formatted in a certain way. To make it easier for you to contribute, we have written detailed instructions for each of the sections. Moreover, you can even easily run a local copy of the Portal on your computer and see all changes live before sending them to us. If you run into an issue, send us an email so that we can help you.
