The Brain Corporation Prize aims to encourage researchers to make freely available the latest and best scholarly information concerning topics in computational neuroscience. To encourage additional contributions, the new deadline for participation in the Brain Corporation Prize contest has been set to June 30th, 2013.
Here are ten reasons (apart from the potential to win prize money) to consider contributing:
- Help discover what works in scholarly collaboration — participate in a global experiment on the future of scholarly research.
- Add a peer-reviewed article to your C.V.
- Support open-access publishing.
- Help the public — provide to the world an accurate article on a topic of importance to you.
- For posterity — be the author of a review that will be useful for decades to come.
- To support interdisciplinary research — encourage others to participate in compiling a free, current, and scholarly online resource.
- To see your work appear in a normal Google search — your article will likely appear within the top five search results when its topic is queried.
- For Curatorship — become a topic Curator, and help ensure that the world has trustworthy information available to them on a topic of your expertise.
- To accelerate research — help science and scholarship advance more quickly by providing an easily accessible and updatable review.
- To promote scholarly information online — help resist the glut of redundant and generic online “content” with a substantive, thoughtful, and enduring contribution.
