More information

On this platform there are three different roles that you can fullfil, each with different functions and different rights: editor, participant, and stakeholders. 

Editors are appointed by the editor-in-chief.  They edit the content of their own collections. Within their collection they can add new articles, collections and projects. Editors create accounts for participants and stakeholders. 

Participants are either civil servants at the municipality of Amsterdam or one of the other involved local authorities or they are researchers at one of the involved universities (of applied sciences) within the Metropolitan Area of Amsterdam. Once their editor has authorized them, they can add content to their collections.   

Stakeholders are involved with one of the participating local autorities or universities on a project base. They are granted access to a private project space by their editor. Within this project space they can add and edit articles and collections. To make this content freely accessible, they need permission from their editors. For example, stakeholders are employees of companies, foundations or inhabitants of Amsterdam.
