What is open science?

Open science is the movement to make scientific research (including publications, data, physical samples, and software) and its dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society, amateur or professional.Open science is transparent and accessible knowledge that is shared and developed through collaborative networks.It encompasses practices such as publishing open research, campaigning for open access, encouraging scientists to practice open notebook science, and generally making it easier to publish and communicate scientific knowledge.

Open Source Neuroscience Training and (Data) Ressources

INCF Training Space

An online hub that aims to make neuroscience educational materials more accessible to the global neuroscience community developed in collaboration with INCF, HBP, SfN, FENS, IBRO, IEEE, BD2K, and iNeuro Initiative. As a hub, TS provides users with access to:

  • Multimedia educational content from courses, conference lectures, and laboratory exercises from some of the world’s leading neuroscience institutes and societies
  • Study tracks to facilitate self-guided study
  • Tutorials on tools and open science resources for neuroscience research
  • A Q&A forum
  • A neuroscience encyclopedia that provides users with access to over 1.000.000 publicly available datasets as well as links to literature references and scientific abstracts

ReproNim: A Center for Reproducible Neuroimaging Computation

The ReproNim vision is to to help neuroimaging researchers to:

  • Find and Share data in a FAIR fashion (discover resources with NeuroBLAST)
  • Comprehensively describe their data and analysis workflows in precisely replicable fashion (describe research processes with ReproIN and BrainVerse)
  • Manage their computational resource options (do analysis with NICEMAN)

so that the outcomes of neuroimaging research are more reproducible.

Innovations in Scholary Communication

hosts a great project listing a large number of tools and databases available for sharing research ideas and outcomes.
