Neuroinformatics is currently soliciting submissions for a special issue
called "Building the NeuroCommons - research and commentary on how
neuroscience is becoming open and FAIR". Submissions due *July 31 2020*.
As neuroscience increasingly defines and adopts FAIR, the act of
publishing in neuroscience will not only serve to communicate new research
but drive the population of a robust, more data- and resource-driven
ecosystem - the NeuroCommons - on which to build further findings.
This special, open-access, issue of Neuroinformatics is dedicated to
building the NeuroCommons and will include articles that embody the
principles of open and FAIR neuroscience:
- FAIRification of neuroscience data, tools and other research objects:
What does it take to move neuroscience closer to the ideal of FAIR?
- Using public data to drive discovery science
- Research infrastructure for neuroscience and how it supports open and
- Standards-based neuroscience. When and where have standards been
effective? What have we learned about creating standards and gaining
adoption? Where are they lacking?
- Perspectives and commentary on the concept of the NeuroCommons, e.g.,
what will it take for neuroscience to become a data-driven discipline based
on pools of open research data? What are challenges and opportunities?
Where have there been successes?

All the best
