"Research area reviews" are ways we work to organize and synthesize information and materials on Public Lab based on topic areas. ## Review Phases Currently, Research Area Reviews are run in three phases: - **Phase 1**: Information Gathering - **Phase 2**: Convening - **Phase 3**: Synthesizing See the [template below](#Template) for a full list of tasks in each phase. #### Phase 1: Information Gathering In Phase 1, the goal is to sift through and update all the existing resources on PublicLab.org related to a topic. This could include checking in on other projects' updates as well, and if there's been a previous review, that's also a great place to start. #### Phase 2: Convening Phase 2 involves hosting an [Open Call](/opencall) to bring folks together, to go through the collected materials from Phase 1, identify gaps and plan next steps. #### Phase 3: Synthesizing In Phase 3, the notes from the call and the newly collected materials, shared goals, and tasks are organized and shared on PublicLab.org, tying the review together in a single post. **** ## Who does reviews? Organizing community materials on PublicLab.org, and growing and organizing our shared knowledge, is important work. If you're interested in helping out, please go ahead!
