Welcome to our updated BRAINnet site and logo!

The aim of this updated site is to provide a new fresh approach to the management of BRAINnet and its resources.  The new look design is intended to provide a stronger framework for the BRAINnet community by both enhancing the sites transparency and providing a workable space by which BRAINnet members can come and interact, easily access data, manage their projects, and collaborate with their colleagues worldwide.

This new, user friendly, interface has been developed to manage the significant growth in BRAINnet membership and outcomes. There have also been further updates to include a space for new information that specifies the advantages of BRAINnet. This includes the number of datasets available, and the types of data.

As part of the redesign, we have added more intuitive user management systems. This includes an improved guided system for submitting projects, paper proposals and accessing the data. Functionality that automatically updates your publication outcomes through direct communication with the PubMed online database will also be added very soon!

New users can now also apply for membership online through the “How to Join” link on the homepage. Membership applications will be reviewed and (upon approval) activated ready for use.

To help increase clarity within the site BRAINnet members can now post and reply to comments throughout the website. Comments can be made throughout the proposal submission and data request process directly. Comments can be made on a member/administration level (i.e. queries and questions) but also by other BRAINnet members during the paper proposal approval process through the use of the new, open and transparent website voting/comment approval process.

Members can now also initiate and participate in open online discussion forums with other BRAINnet members in their field. Members can select to follow, join in and create discussions as they wish.

If you have any further suggestions or queries regarding the site please contact BRAINnet@brainresource.com.
