        Does researchkit have plans for or already have a way to end a study? What is the best practice for expiring an app (app associated with a study that collects data) at the end of a study?

          Of course it depends on the study, but what about migrating to carekit...

              It's strictly a study app at this point that is just for collecting data not a clinical app or disease management app. Are there any apps out there that expire or end date at the end of a study?

                  When it opens, the RK blog sounds like a perfect place to bring this up.

                  As for simply ending a study, from a participant's view, it would be basically the same as leaving an ongoing study - for the developer, it would be the same as removing an app from the store - for a researcher, it would be the same as ending any research project where final dates are communicated to participants and principals, and a conclusion paper sums up the project, etc.
