INCF now endorses SBPs!21 December 2016
We are very excited to start off 2018 by further developing our aim to promote the neuroinformatics field and advance data reuse and reproducibility in brain research according to FAIR principles. We are doing this by implementing a process for endorsement of community standards and best practices (SBPs) for neuroscience where existing ones or the development of new ones can be proposed. The endorsement process is managed by the INCF Secretariat and a committee appointed by the CTSI, with a key step being a review by the public.
The goal of INCF is to serve the global neuroscience community by providing materials, expertise, training, and SBPs for:
- scientists seeking to improve their science through neuroinformatics, who will benefit from a coordinated network of tools and expertise
- current infrastructure providers so they can do their jobs better and participate in the global network
- those seeking to add new capacity to the network
