The Study Explorer is a tool that helps you to understand the contents of individual studies contributed to the Ki knowledge base.

https://www.studyexplorer.io/

The Study Explorer tool, also known as the Data Store Explorer, presents information about the experimental design of the individual studies, such as whether a study is longitudinal or cross-sectional, interventional, or observational, and the ages, calendar years, and countries of study enrollment. The tool enables you to search for the presence of standardized data fields such as anthropometry measures, biomarkers, microbiology tests, and nutrient intake quantities. Study Explorer displays descriptions of the studies or the study data; facilitates a search for studies that have specific design features or relevant data for your question.

Intended Use

On the home page, there are 4 go buttons that you can use to explore descriptions of the studies or the study data; the top 2 go buttons are the most relevant for most users. From the study filter go button, you can search for studies that have specific design features or relevant data for your question.

The Challenge

As the number of studies contributed to the Ki knowledge base increased, it became necessary to have a tool that would enable researchers to search for studies that include the data or study design characteristics of interest to answer their particular research questions.

Key Features

Filter by study attribute

From the Study Filter go button on the home page, a user can select studies by study attribute or the presence of specific data fields.

Filter by study name

From the Study Explorer go button on the home page, a user can select studies by study name.

Save to a comma-separated values file

After generating a display of the variables that are included in specific studies, optionally also broken down by child's age, you can save a CSV version of the information in this display.
