INCF endorses community standards and best practices for neuroscience that comply with the FAIR principles

INCF provides a process for endorsement of FAIR community standards or best practices (SBPs), where existing ones or the development of new ones can be proposed. Community members can propose existing or suggest to develop new SBPs for endorsement by INCF. The SBP endorsement process includes an open community review, followed by a decision of the SBP subcommittee.
