This section is where the studies are designed and from where the data records will be extracted. It is not accessible to Guest users, accessible read-only to Interviewer users, and editable by Manager and Administrator users.

The Amber data model is the following:

  • A Study has Forms,

  • A Form has a schema (the description of fields/items, with multilanguage support) and associated Form versions,

  • A Case Report Form describes the context of a data collection with a Form version,

  • A Case Report is a record of data that were captured using a Case Report Form.

An extraction of records constitutes a Dataset, i.e. a synthesis of a data dictionary (built from the Form schema, in a specific version) and the data (the records).
