Imaging Neuroscience Response regarding BIDS ‘badge’

(see email from Steve Smith)
“Thanks for this - hopefully we all agree that using BIDS is a good idea where practical, and should be encouraged.

The best thing would be for BIDS (committee etc) to encourage authors to be very clear and explicit (eg in Methods text) when BIDS has been used, just as with the many other important aspects of the methodology used in a given paper. At Imaging Neuroscience we would have no problem at all in authors being clear about their use of BIDS. We couldn't have a "front page badge" because that would risk an overwhelming number of similar requests, but I think the important thing is to explicitly mention use of BIDS in the main text.

Imaging Neuroscience Response regarding BIDS ‘badge’

BIDS impact

Zotero collection for tracking BIDS related publications, BEPs, etc: []{.underline}

The BIDS grant writing kit could be updated

There is also a github for this: []{.underline}

This info should also be displayed on the website

This should be included in the BIDS github as well.

Overall great feedback for this initial draft -

Suggested to include grant writing boilerplate info about BIDS stats

Add rationale at the beginning of both the [BIDS grant writing kit]{.underline} and [Remi’s github dashboard]{.underline}

Is the BIDS granting writing kit meant to support building the BIDS community or for users to mention BIDS in their grants.

Where can we document the various grants that have been inspired by BIDS? Can we also include a link to the funding proposal
Google Analytics on [Grant writing kit]{.underline} need to be updated:

For visualizing our metrics, we have put together 2 dashboards:

  1. the website

  2. the specification

Ask BEP025 for update on BIDS website?

Have a run of show for the OHBM Open Science Room BIDS Town Hall (Eric to take this topic to maintainers)
