The purpose of this best practice is to elaborate the principles of open and reproducible research for neuroimaging using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). It covers: 1. experimental design reporting, 2. image acquisition reporting, 3. preprocessing reporting, 4. statistical modeling, 5. results reporting, 6. data sharing, and 7. reproducibility. For each of seven areas of a study, a tabular listing of over 100 items to help plan, execute, report, and share research in the most transparent fashion is provided.
NeuroImaging Data Model (NIDM)-Results provides a representation of mass univariate neuroimaging analysis results, unified across analysis software packages. Implementation of NIDM-Results within FSL and SPM, two of the main neuroimaging software packages, provides an automated solution to share maps generated by neuroimaging studies along with their metadata.
