A wiki is a collaborative Web site. Content can be added and edited by anyone with permission to the site. The Research Consortium has developed this wiki with open access to anyone who wishes to participate. It is intended for use by physical activity and health researchers, to share information about topics such as: becoming a researcher, the research process, tools and measures, research training and data sources and research reports. To view the wiki and/or contribute to it, go to: http://rcresource.wetpaint.com/.
