The Resource Identification Initiative have just published a paper on their pilot project the to improve the reporting standards for research resources. In the pilot, authors were asked to include Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) in their manuscripts prior to publication. Since the start of the pilot in February 2014, over 300 papers have appeared that report RRIDs, and more than 40 journals have joined. Identifiability of the resources pre- and post-pilot showed a dramatic improvement for all resource types, suggesting that the project has had a significant impact on reproducibility.
INCF is announcing a new partnership with F1000Research to create a dedicated, digital, open publishing solution for INCF’s members and the expanding neuroinformatics community. The new INCF Community Channel will provide an affordable, open publishing channel to capture research from our ctivities and research articles from the neuroinformatics field. The channel will be launched in August, the first of its kind for INCF, and will enable the organization’s congress and workshop attendees to share and publish academic posters and slides in one searchable domain.
Registration is open for the Neuroimaging (NIDM) Data Model hackathon to be held in Cairns, August 17-18 at the Pullman Cairns hotel. The objective of the workshop is to introduce NIDM to developers and provide instruction on how to develop in NIDM, while the hackathon will focus on two topics: i. integration of NIDM with existing tools and ii. a common Neuroimaging Atlasing format.
