In this presentation by the OHBM OpenScienceSIG, Tom Shaw and Steffen Bollmann cover how containers can be useful for running the same software on different platforms and sharing analysis pipelines with other researchers. They demonstrate how to build docker containers from scratch, using Neurodocker, and cover how to use containers on an HPC with singularity.

DAQCORD is a framework for the design, documentation and reporting of data curation methods in order to advance the scientific rigour, reproducibility and analysis of the data. This lecture covers the rationale for developing the framework, the process in which the framework was developed, and ends with a presentation of the framework. While the driving use case for DAQCORD was clinical traumatic brain injury research, the framework is applicable to clinical studies in other domains of clinical neuroscience research.

This module covers how the brain interacts with the world through motor movements. Motor movements underlie so much of our functioning, our speech, the opening and closing of our eyes, and the beating of our hearts. We’ll learn about areas of the brain involved in movement and some of its pathways.

This module explains how neurons come together to create the networks that give rise to our thoughts. The totality of our neurons and their connection is called our connectome. Learn how this connectome changes as we learn, and computes information. We will also learn about physiological phenomena of the brain such as synchronicity that gives rise to brain waves.

The landscape of scientific research is changing. Today’s researchers need to participate in large-scale collaborations, obtain and manage funding, share data, publish, and undertake knowledge translation activities in order to be successful. As per these increasing demands, Science Management is now a vital piece of the environment.

Over the last three decades, neuroimaging research has seen large strides in the scale, diversity, and complexity of studies, the open availability of data and methodological resources, the quality of instrumentation and multimodal studies, and the number of researchers and consortia. The awareness of rigor and reproducibility has increased with the advent of funding mandates, and with the work done by national and international brain initiatives. This session will focus on the question of FAIRness in neuroimaging research touching on each of the FAIR elements through brief vignettes of ongoing research and challenges faced by the community to enact these principles. This lecture covers the NIDM data format within BIDS to make your datasets more searchable, and how to optimize your dataset searches.

In the past five years, researchers have seen a growing number of research data management (RDM) policies being implemented by funders, publishers, and institutions. One key element in meeting these requirements, particularly in terms of data discovery, is using metadata, which helps make research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (the FAIR principles). This session discussed the secret life of your dataset metadata: the ways in which, for many years to come, it will work non-stop to foster the visibility, reach, and impact of your work. We explored how metadata will help your dataset travel through the global research infrastructure, and how data repositories and discovery services can use this (meta)data to help launch your dataset into the world.

Data management plans, or DMPs, are one of the foundations of good research data management. This DMP-focused webinar will be of interest to researchers, graduate students, librarians, and research support stakeholders, and will provide foundational information on developing DMPs. Topics covered will include the importance and benefits of DMPs, how they support research excellence, and what makes a ‘good’ DMP, as well as a detailed look at their standard content. Resources to help with the development of DMPs – including bilingual training materials, guidance documents and Exemplar DMPs – will be presented, as well as an update on the activities of the Portage DMP Expert Group, including forthcoming resources. A brief overview of the DMP Assistant platform will be provided, while a second separate session will deliver an in-depth look at the latest version of this platform, including its key features.

Data management plans, or DMPs, are one of the foundations of good research data management. Hosted by the University of Alberta Library and supported by the Portage Network, the DMP Assistant is a national, open, bilingual data management planning (DMP) tool to help researchers better manage their data throughout the lifespan of a project. The tool develops a DMP by prompting researchers to answer a number of key data management questions, supported by best-practice guidance and examples. Building on the preceding DMP-focused webinar, this session will be of interest to researchers, graduate students, librarians, and research support stakeholders. Participants will take an in-depth look at the newly launched DMP Assistant 2.0, including all of its enhanced key features for both end-users and institutional administrators, as well as a brief look at the future of the platform.

The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal is a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.

 

In this video, Samir Das and Tristan Glatard give a short overview of the main features of the CONP Portal.
