Conventional document and discussion websites provide users with no help in
assessing the quality or quantity of evidence behind any given idea.
Besides, the very meaning of what evidence is may not be unequivocally
defined within a community, and may requiredeep understanding, common
ground and debate. An Evidence Hub is a tool to pool the community
collective intelligence on what is evidence for an idea. It provides an
infrastructure for debating and building evidence-based knowledge and
practice. An Evidence Hub is best thought of as a filter onto other
websites — a map that distills the most important issues, ideas and
evidence from the noise by making clear why ideas and web resources may be
worth further investigation. This paper describes the Evidence Hub concept
and rationale, the breath of user engagement and the evolution of specific
features, derived from our work with different community groups in the
healthcare and educational sector.
The Evidence Hub is a contested collective intelligence tool for
communities to gather and debateevidence for ideas and solutions to
specific community issues. By aggregating and connecting single
contributions the Evidence Hub provides a collective picture of what is the
evidence for different ideas, which have been shared by an online
community.

Abstract

Conventional document and discussion websites provide
users with no help in assessing the quality or quantity of
evidence behind any given idea. Besides, the very meaning
of what evidence is may not be unequivocally defined
within a community, and may require deep understanding,
common ground and debate. An Evidence Hub is a tool to
pool the community collective intelligence on what is
evidence for an idea. It provides an infrastructure for
debating and building evidence-based knowledge and
practice. An Evidence Hub is best thought of as a filter onto
other websites — a map that distills the most important
issues, ideas and evidence from the noise by making clear
why ideas and web resources may be worth further
investigation. This paper describes the Evidence Hub
concept and rationale, the breath of user engagement and
the evolution of specific features, derived from our work
with different community groups in the healthcare and
educational sector.
