Information on registering and signing in

You may use the ICD-11 browser without registration. However, registered users of the browser can perform the following functions in addition to browsing and searching the ICD11 content

  • Contribute to the development of ICD11 by commenting on the content as well as answering some questions
  • Read other users' comments
  • Access to PDF versions of the classification that they can print

You may click the [Log In] link to sign in to the system. If you don't already have an account, it's very easy to setup one using the same link.

Browsing Existing Proposals

When you are in Proposals page, you may browse the ICD hierarchy using a familiar interface. To go to the entity that you are interested you could use the Searching and Advanced Search functions as well

You may filter the hierarchy by choosing a linearization from the dropdown list. For example, if you choose "Joint Linearization..." only ICD entities in that linearization will be shown

If Foundation is chosen no filter is applied.

When a filter is used, the search functionality will also only look for entities in the filtered content

The system saves the proposals in the same place regardless of the filter chosen. I.e. You will see the same proposals when you browse the same entity no matter which filter you use.

Once you are on a particular entity, our system will show you the proposals attached to that entity.

If you'd like to see all proposals attached to the item as well as all of its decendants then you could use the checkbox above that says "Show proposals of descendant entities" .

Clicking on the Proposal will open it in "read mode". If you are the author of the proposal you could click edit and open the proposal in "editing mode" as well.

Agreeing/Disagreeing and Commenting on Proposals

If you open a proposal in view mode, you have the option of Agreeing/Disagreeing parts of the proposal by clicking the relevant button. It is also possible to write a comment on the proposal using the comment buttoncomment button. If the button looks like comment button then it means there are already comments in there

It is generally better to help improving an existing proposal rather than writing your own proposal in case a similar proposal already exists.
