Importance of community reviews in the INCF standards and best practices endorsement process
INCF solicits community feedback as a part of our Standards and Best Practices (SBPs) endorsement process. Feedback from the community ensures that those who will use the standards have a chance to make them as interoperable as possible with the systems, software, and resources that are currently being used in the field. It verifies that the SPBs will benefit the community, and allows for streamlining to make the standards more efficient and effective - producing the desired result of reproducibility with methods that minimize wasted time and effort.
Beyond serving as a platform for soliciting new SBPs, the review process provides a venue for the collection and combination of standards that are already in place. With help from the community, this process helps our SBPs to be high-quality, user-friendly, and consistent with the principles of FAIR and open neuroscience.
