FAIR Metadata Working Group
Chair: Prof. Maryann Martone, Ph.D. UCSD
Contact neuroinfoCellTypesSIG@incf.org for questions.
The aim of this working group is the harmonization of Common Data Elements (CDEs) for data discovery and metadata annotation.
Use cases addressed:
Mapping of data elements to corresponding CDEs as part of Neuroimaging Data Model (NIDM) tool development [work with the INCF SIG on Reproducibility and Best Practices in Human Brain Imaging]
Alignment of CDEs between projects such as the Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System (LORIS) and Ontario Brain Institute Brain-CODE
Modeling of computational measures as CDEs, e.g., volumetric measures of brain structures provided by FreeSurfer
The group is working on a specification document for common data elements.
