We present the open problem of building a comprehensive clinical trial repository to remove duplication of effort from the systematic review process. Arguing that no single organization has the resources to solve this problem, an approach based on crowdsourcing supplemented by automated data extraction appears to be the most promising. To determine the feasibility of this idea, we discuss the key challenges that need to be addressed.
