NIF contributes to the
a dynamic database of research resources (databases, data sets, software tools, materials and services)
of interest to and produced by biomedical researchers.
Each Research Resource receives a unique ID that allows it to be tracked in the literature and linked
to useful information. If you would like to add your resource or recommend a resource for inclusion in the
Registry, please follow the steps on this page.
Please read our tutorial describing the different types of resources we accept to help decide which type your resource belongs to.
Step 1. Make sure your resource is not already included
Step 2. Enter the resource into the SciCrunch Registry
Just provide the minimal information for a resource and we'll fill in the rest. Suggesting a resource will not generate an RRID until a SciCrunch curator approves it.
Welcome to the Neuroscience Information Framework Project, designed to serve the biomedical research community. NIF maintains the largest searchable collection of neuroscience data, the largest catalog of biomedical resources, and the largest ontology for neuroscience on the web. We welcome all feedback and suggestions and are actively looking for resource providers to make their resources accessible through NIF. Learn about the tools available to help you share your data and discover a dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscience resources.
