LimeSurvey, a key tool for open-science data building

The NeuroMat technology-transfer team has been active in the creation and spreading of free and open-source software tools and materials on how to use efficiently these tools. Such activities are in tune with the commitment that NeuroMat, the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics, has embraced in relying exclusively on open-science tools and becoming a reference in open science.

NeuroMat will soon release a new, open-source technology to manage experimental data in neuroscience. This technology is a direct result of the partnership between NeuroMat's team at the University of São Paulo and at the Deolindo Couto Neurology Institute, from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

The work of NeuroMat's technology-transfer team, especially in the case of the open-source software to manage experimental data in neuroscience, has relied and been integrated to other free and open-source software tools. LimeSurvey, a software that is used to create and manage electronic surveys, has been particularly important. NeuroMat encourages its team members and followers to take a minute to learn about this technology – information on LimeSurvey may be found on its official website and practical steps on how to use it are available on its official manual.
