It is with great excitement that I can finally say the production release of OpenClinica 2.5 is here! It took a lot of hard work and dedication not just from our developers, but our testers and community contributors as well.

Please go here to download the latest and greatest offering of the preeminent open source application for electronic data capture and clinical data management. You will need to have an account on to download it. If you don’t have one you can register for one.

In the download package you will find installation scripts for both the Oracle and PostgreSQL databases on both the Linux and Windows operating systems. In addition, for folks currently using version 2.2.1 or 2.2.2, there are scripts to upgrade your instance to OpenClinica 2.5.

Everyone will be able to experience the robust new features of the application including Bulk Data Import, Improved Query Management and Resolution, Cross Form/Cross Field Edit Checks, and Editing/Copying Datasets. Also, we have removed the need for a nightly data warehouse script to run and now you can extract data in real time.

Please join Akaza Research on October 7th for a free webinar introducing OpenClinica 2.5. You can sign-up here:

Webinar @ 19:00 – 20:30 (GMT -5:00)
Webinar @ 9:30 – 11:00 (GMT – 5:00)

Of course we’d highly recommend attending a training course so you too can become an expert user of OpenClinica. Our first open enrollment training on OpenClinica 2.5 is being offered October 15-17.

Thanks again to everyone for making this release a success!
