Towards Opening and Sharing of Neuroimaging Data in Korea
We outlined the current state and issues of data sharing in the field of neuroimaging for big data resource and open science in Korea. There are several reasons neuroimaging data should be shared. Since the cost of neuroimaging research can be stated in terms of data acquisition costs and sacrifice of acquisition time for patients. Thus the redundant data acquisition needs to be avoided if possible. The shared neuroimaging data can maximize use of research data and lead to a scientific discovery and new analysis method as well as providing much greater statistical power. Compared to simple metadata of structural imaging, the metadata specification and standardization of task-based functional imaging are challenging. Moreover, we have to resolve a few issues like personal information protection, legal rights of data and infrastructure establishment. There are already open repositories for neuroimaging data outside of Korea. To get involved and play a role in open science society, we should lower barriers of our own and try to find a way to get involved in open science system. Thus push-forward policy and motivation of researchers are considered as important factors.
