Brainhack: Open tools for Brain Science

edited by Dr Cameron Craddock, Dr Daniel Margulies, Dr Pierre Bellec, and Dr Nolan Nichols

A new series from GigaScience, now encouraging submissions!

This series features neuroscience tools and projects that embody the ethos of open science. Example topics include open source software tools, data repositories, collaborative projects, and other open science initiatives - regardless of whether they have roots at Brainhack events. Project reports from annual Brainhack and OHBM hackathon events will be published as a supplementary series (check out the 2015 supplement here).
