The launch of several international large brain projects indicates that we are still far from understanding the brain at even a basic level, let alone being able to intervene meaningfully in most degenerative, psychiatric and traumatic brain disorders. Such projects reflect the idea that neuroscience needs to be placed on a more data-rich, computational footing to address the inherent complexity of the nervous system. But should we just be looking towards big science to produce comprehensive and integrated data and tools? What about the thousands of studies conducted by individual investigators and small teams, so called “long tail data"? In this presentation, I will discuss perspectives and tools for moving neuroscience towards open and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable), highlighting our experiences in building and maintaining the Neuroscience Information Framework and other related projects. I will also provide an example of work underway in the spinal cord Injury community to come together around the sharing and integration of long tail data. ..."
