Tool Fund Grantee - NES

The Fellows Programme is part of the Frictionless Data for Reproducible Research project at Open Knowledge Foundation, a global, non-profit network that promotes and shares information at no charge, including both content and data. This project, funded by the Sloan Foundation, applies to work in Frictionless Data to data-driven research disciplines, in order to facilitate data workflows in research contexts. During the first half of 2019, Neuroscience Experiments System (NES) was selected to be a funded project of Frictionless Data. As you may know, NES is an open-source tool being developed that aims to assist neuroscience research laboratories in routine procedures for data collection. NES was developed to store a large amount of data in a structured way, allowing researchers to seek and share data and metadata of neuroscience experiments. To the best of our knowledge, there are no open-source software tools which provide a way to record data and metadata involved in all steps of an electrophysiological experiment and also register experimental data and its fundamental provenance information. With the anonymization of sensitive information, the data collected using NES can be publicly available through the NeuroMat Open Database, which allows any researcher to reproduce the experiment or simply use the data in a different study.

The system already has some features ready to use, such as Participant registration, Experiment management, Questionnaire management and Data exportation. Some types of data that NES deals with are tasks, stimuli, instructions, EEG, EMG, TMS and questionnaires. Questionnaires are produced with LimeSurvey (an open-source software).
