MNI Open Research

Tanenbaum Open Science Institute

A platform for rapid, author-led publication and open peer review of any research conducted at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital.

What is it?

MNI Open Research is a science publishing platform offering near-immediate publication of research conducted by research groups at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (MNI). The platform, a pillar of the MNI’s Tanenbaum Open Science Institute, supports research integrity, reproducibility and transparency by using an open access model that incorporates open, post-publication peer review, alongside a robust open data policy.

How will it work?

All researchers affiliated with the MNI can publish any research and data they wish to share. The platform will use the same model that has been established for F1000Research and Wellcome Open Research.

Why are we doing this?

The MNI is convinced a no-barrier approach to sharing research data, materials and ideas will improve the quality of neuroscience research and accelerate the discovery of effective treatments for neurological disease. Last year, the MNI announced its intention to become the world’s first Open Science institution, with the recently established Tanenbaum Open Science Institute helping the MNI implement its vision.

MNI Open Research will play a key role in this approach, ensuring any research conducted at the MNI can be published without barriers in a way that supports reproducibility and adheres to the institute’s Open Science principles.

When will it happen?

MNI Open Research is scheduled to launch in November 2017. You can stay up-to-date with the latest developments by signing up for alerts.

The mission of the MNI’s new Tanenbaum Open Science Institute is to develop and spread a new model of discovery and innovation based on the usage of Open Science principles as accelerators, for the benefits of patients and community, and for the development of best practices globally. MNI Open Research is designed to ensure that our community can quickly share their discoveries.
