List of standards and best practices
INCF provides a library with community standards and best practices for global neuroscience
INCF endorses community standards and best practices (SBPs) for neuroscience that promote the FAIR principles, and also supports the development of new SBPs. Community members can propose existing or suggest to develop new SBPs for endorsement by INCF.
SBPs that have been endorsed by INCF can be found here.
The SBPs listed below are not INCF-endorsed, but have been developed with support from INCF:
The Scalable Brain Atlas is a fully web-based display engine for brain atlases, imaging data, and ontologies. It allows client websites to show brain region related data in a 3D interactive context and provides services to look up regions, generate thumbnails, or download nomenclature- and delineation data.
The NeuroImaging Data Model (NIDM) is a collection of specification documents and examples that describe an extension to the W3C PROV standard for the domain of human brain mapping.
The aim of Neurodata Without Borders is to standardize neuroscience data on an international scale. The goal is to break down the geographic, institutional, technological and policy barriers that impede the flow of neuroscience data to the scientific community.
A reference framework for classifying general mammal nervous system structures.
What is FAIR?
The FAIR principles are a set of community-developed guidelines to ensure that data or any digital object are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
