# Contributing
{: .fs-9 }
How to contribute to this repository
{: .fs-6 .fw-300 }
---
We want to ensure that every user and contributor feels welcome and included in the WIN Open Neuroimaging community. We ask all contributors and community members to follow the [code of conduct](/community/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md) in all community interactions.
**We hope that this guideline document will make it as easy as possible for you to get involved.**
Please follow these guidelines to make sure your contributions can be easily integrated in the projects. As you start contributing to the WIN Open Neuroimaging, don't forget that your ideas are more important than perfect [pull requests](https://opensource.stackexchange.com/questions/352/what-exactly-is-a-pull-request).
## 1. Contact us
In the first instance, we encourage you [connect with the Open WIN Community](contact.md). Let us know that you are reading the repository and you would like to contribute! You might like to introduce yourself on the #welcome channel on our [Slack workspace](https://cassgvp.github.io/WIN-Open-Neuroimaging-Community/docs/contact.html#open-win-slack-)! 👋
## 2. Check what we're working on
You can see the things we are working on in the [Open WIN Repository Trello board](https://trello.com/b/u4FqvNJv). Have a look through and see where we have known gaps. You are also welcome to suggest any of your own improvements.
We also invite you to review our [roadmap](community/roadmap.md) and see how we are progressing against our community milestones.
## 3. Join us at a documentation hack!
We will be holding regular "documentation hacks", where you will be guided through the process of contributing to the repository, and can participate in a git tutorial if you'd benefit from this. Take a look at our [events page](events.md) to find out when the next documentation hack will be held.
At the documentation hack, you will hear from members of the [Open Neuroimaging Project Working Groups](https://cassgvp.github.io/WIN-Open-Neuroimaging-Community/docs/community/community-who.html#win-open-neuroimaging-working-group) and learn about the progress of each tool. You will learn how to use each tool, be invited to contribute feedback to the tool developers, and invited to write "how to" guides to walk novice users through the process of shearing their research outputs using the [Open WIN Tools](tools.md).
We will also use the documentation hacks to plan as a community, learn about what policy or guidance we need to support working open at WIN, and think about how we would like to develop. This will include community-led planning of the [Open WIN Ambassadors scheme](ambassadors.md).
## Or, 4. Jump straight in!
If you are confident using git, markdown, and github pages, you are very welcome to [submit an issue to our github repository](https://github.com/cassgvp/WIN-Open-Neuroimaging-Community/issues), and [submit a pull request](https://github.com/cassgvp/WIN-Open-Neuroimaging-Community/pulls).

# Benefits for Ambassadors
{: .fs-9 }
Find out about how the benefits of becoming an Open WIN Ambassador
{: .fs-6 .fw-300 }
---
In recognition of the time, skill and expertise it takes to be an Open Ambassador, you will receive a number of benefits for taking part. These may include:
- Ambassador profiles on this repository
- Named authorship on the repository citation
- Recognition of your contribution on your annual personal development review
- Opportunities to network with likeminded colleagues internally and externally
- Opportunity to shape the policy, structure and governance of the Open WIN Community
- Career advancement and exposure
- Access to a dedicated training and development fund to support your growth in open research or a related topic
- Approved time with your line manager to contribute to these activities
- Merchandise! You want a mug?! We could get mugs! ☕️ 😅
What else would you like? We're aiming to solve the problems which you face, or your barriers to working open. Why do you want to participate? What would motivate others like you?
## Career advancement and exposure
Engaging with open research is good for your CV as many funding and fellowship applications are now requesting and recognising research outputs other than solely papers. For example, preprints, code, datasets and documentation can all be referenced with a digital object identifier (doi) and cited as research outputs. Our hope is that any user of the Open WIN Tools will be able to produce some non-traditional research outputs, however we expect that Ambassadors will stand out as deeply committed to this work.
Ambassadors will have the opportunity to devise and deliver training on these tools, and potentially lead sub-teams who are working on a specific output. These are both excellent experience and opportunities to show leadership on your CV.
Active participation in this community is also evidence of "Good Citizenship" which can be discussed in new employment and promotion applications. It may involve engaging with Senior Management on committees, and you will have the opportunity to learn about background processes in academic life which early career researchers are often not exposed to.

# Expectations of Ambassadors
{: .fs-9 }
The behaviours and activities we would like Ambassadors to commit to
{: .fs-6 .fw-300 }
---
We would like WIN Open Ambassadors to be aligned with the following activities:
- Commitment to learn about open research practices, understand own knowledge gaps and know where to signpost effectively
- Act as advisors/mentors to other researchers in their research groups, Department and WIN
- Advocate for open research practices an the use of Open WIN Tools in their research groups, Department and WIN
- Speak to researchers about their own experience with open research practices and infrastructure during research group and Departmental presentations and training events
- Participate in Ambassadors meetings once every two months
- Participate in termly co-working hack days where possible
- Engage in community activities for 2-8 hours per month, in addition to the above meeting schedule
In return for their time and commitment, various [rewards and incentives](benfits.md) will be offered to those who become WIN Open Ambassadors.
We will work to support Ambassadors in all these activities, with communication channels, training, presentation materials and defined routes of development. This support will develop as the project grows, and you will have an open invitation to suggest any additional ways we could support you in growing our community.

{: .label .label-yellow }
**THIS WORK IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT. MATERIALS WILL BE DEVELOPED WITH THE COMMUNITY WITH FEEDBACK FROM WIN MANAGEMENT**
We have created the ambassador program to ensure as many people as possible can access the sharing infrastructure created by the Open Neuroimaging Project.
We would also like to create opportunities for our community to engage learn best practice in open research, connect with each other, develop their experience and boost their CVs with open research outputs!
We also wanted to create a feedback system where our community of users can shape the environment which they work in. We are at the leading edge of these initiatives, and we firmly believe that our users are excellently positioned to contribute to the future of such efforts.
We have specific goals for engagement which are driven by the project metrics which communicated to the [External Advisory Board (EAB)](https://sharepoint.nexus.ox.ac.uk/sites/NDCN/FMRIB/Shared%20Documents/EAB_TOR.pdf#search=external%20review%20board) who are tasked with providing "an external and independent view on plans and progress" of WIN. <mark> Can the 2018 EAB report be shared on intranet too? - yes. </mark>.
We also have a goal to show a year-on-year growth in understanding and engagement with open research practices, as measured by the [WIN 2019 Open Science Survey](https://sharepoint.nexus.ox.ac.uk/sites/NDCN/FMRIB/SitePages/WIN%20Survey%20Results%202019.aspx) and the
Based on these combined drivers, our initial goals are to:
## Demonstrate infrastructure engagement
Open Data
- Number of WIN researchers with database accounts
- Percentage of WIN researchers actively using the database
- Number of scans in the database
- Number of studies in the database
- Number of studies shared across WIN
- Number of studies shared externally
- Number of external requests to access studies
Open Paradigms
- Number of paradigms published on the website, potentially number of visits to the site
- Uplift in supporting documentation standards <mark>Added by CGVP. Much of the paradigms repo is pretty near unusable as so little documentation.</mark>
Open Protocols
- Number of protocols openly published in database
- Number of visits to the database and number of downloads
- Number of citations/acknowledgements of protocols used from the database
Open Tools
- Number of FSL tools that have singularity outputs
- Number of downloads of tools with singularity outputs
- Number of publications using singularity outputs
- Number of BIDS meetings attended
Open Community
<mark>TBC and consider more</mark>
- Number of Ambassadors
- Number of users on mailing lists and number of messages <mark>Can we look back at this historically?</mark>
- Number of users (active and inactive) on slack
- Number of contributors to this repository
- Number of enquires (and responses) made to Ambassadors
- Number of attendees at hack-day
- Feedback from hack-day
## Improve awareness and experience with open research practices
- Increase in the number of open access papers immediately available
- Improve awareness of open research practices, particularly registered reports and open educational materials.
- Encourage the community to share pre-prints of their papers.
![OS-Survey 2019 slide 3](../img/open-science-survey-results/Slide3.png)
- Appreciate the value of open science practices in career development
![OS-Survey 2019 slide 4](../img/open-science-survey-results/Slide4.png)
- Appreciate the value of open sharing of code.
- Encourage the community to realise the value of sharing data within the current limits of our [open data policy](OpenData.md), and equip them with the tools and knowledge to do so.
![OS-Survey 2019 slide 5](../img/open-science-survey-results/Slide5.png)
## Reduce barriers to engaging in open research practices
- Devise and promote positive incentives for open research within WIN.
- Clarify and communicate legal and ethical obligations fo data sharing.
- Promote and train the community to use the newly developed WIN Open Infrastructure for sharing [data](OpenData.md), [experimental paradigms](OpenParadigms.md), [acquisition protocols](OpenProtocols.md) and [analysis tools](OpenTools.md)
![OS-Survey 2019 slide 6](../img/open-science-survey-results/Slide6.png)
![OS-Survey 2019 slide 7](../img/open-science-survey-results/Slide7.png)
## Create and share documentation
- Empower the community to learn together as we explore these topics, and share their knowledge on this repository <mark>update when moved</mark> in the form of written documentation.
- Hold in-person and online training workshops and "hacks" where we can learn together and create documentation.

Below we have answered some questions about how the pilot Ambassadors program will be structured. Jump straight to one of the questions or go through them all!
* [How many Ambassadors will take part in the pilot program?](#how-many-ambassadors-will-take-part-in-the-pilot-program)
* [How will the Ambassadors work together?](#how-will-the-ambassadors-work-together)
* [How long will Ambassadors be in-post for?](#how-long-will-ambassadors-be-in-post-for)
* [Who can be an ambassador?](#who-can-be-an-ambassador)
* [How can I become an Ambassador?](#wow-can-i-become-an-ambassador)
# How many Ambassadors will take part in the pilot program?
In this pilot program, we will look to engage up to ten Ambassadors. Ultimately we would like to have an Ambassador in each of the WIN research groups.
# How will the Ambassadors work together?
While working on creating documentation, we would like to have teams of two people working on each of the four focus areas of the infrastructure tools and a team working explicitly on community and policies. In all these efforts, all Ambassadors will be invited to contribute to the material and efforts of other teams, if they so wish.
# How long will Ambassadors be in-post for?
The pilot program will run from September 2020 to September 2021. All recruited Ambassadors will be expected to remain engaged with the program for this period, and should have confirmed posts as WIN members during this whole period.
# Who can be an ambassador?
Anyone! Student, postdoc, core staff, professional services...
# How can I become an Ambassador?
A competitive application for this program will be launched in September 2020. As part of the application you will be expected to describe why you are interested in becoming and Ambassador, what you will bring to the Ambassadors team and wider community, and what you will gain from being an Ambassador. You will also be asked to produce a letter of confirmation from your Supervisor or line manager stating that they support your engagement with the program and will allow you time away from your existing duties to take part in events and contribute between meetings.

# Participation Guidelines
{: .fs-9 }
How Open WIN Community members are expected to work, communicate and interact with each other, so we can all perform at our best.
{: .fs-6 .fw-300 }
---
## Guiding principles
We value the participation of every member of our community and want to ensure that every contributor has an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
Accordingly, everyone who participates in the Open WIN Community is expected to show respect and courtesy to other community members at all times.
Cassandra Gould van Praag, as [Community Engagement Coordinator](https://cassgvp.github.io/WIN-Open-Neuroimaging-Community/docs/community/community-who.html#community-coordinator---cassandra-gould-van-praag-sheher) of this project, and all project members, are dedicated to a ***harassment-free experience for everyone***, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or technology choices. **We do not tolerate harassment by and/or of members of our community in any form**.
## Traditionally under-represented groups
We are particularly motivated to support new and/or anxious contributors, people who are looking to learn and develop their skills, and anyone who has experienced discrimination in the past.
We invite all members of this community to actively support the participation of under-represented individuals through recognition of our own privilege and consideration of [how we can use our privilege to benefit others](https://www.ucl.ac.uk/chemical-engineering/edi/better-allies/understand-your-privilege-and-use-it-good).
We work closely with the [WIN Member Networks](https://www.win.ox.ac.uk/about/edi/member-networks) to ensure that the behaviours we model and the materials we produce are aligned with best practice in establishing equality, diversity and belonging.
## Formal policy
This community is designed to serve individuals affiliated with WIN, and as such these individuals will all be expected to comply with [University of Oxford Harassment Policy](https://edu.admin.ox.ac.uk/harassment-policy) and the reporting procedures detailed in that policy.
We will begin events with a reminder of the Harassment Policy and expected behaviours. Anyone who experiences or witnesses a violation of the Harassment Policy is encouraged to address the incident directly where they feel safe to do so, or follow the reporting guidelines to escalate where necessary.
**Advice on how this policy is implemented and where you can receive support in these matters is available from the [University Equality and Diversity Unit](https://edu.web.ox.ac.uk/harassment-advice)**
## Being a responsible bystander
In this community we value efforts to promote a positive work environment, free from intimidation and all forms of violence. We are therefore pleased to support the University in enacting the Harassment Policy by acting as responsible bystanders, and doing what we can to promote a safe and conducive work environment. We encourage all community members to be responsible bystanders.

## Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, University of Oxford is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the [Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1](https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/) AA standard, due to the non-compliance and exemptions listed on our ‘Known Issues page’.
## Known Issues page
### Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
### Issues with images
#### Images
- Some images do not have a meaningful text alternative or sufficient captions, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1.
By October 2021, all images will have meaningful text alternative. Purely decorative images will have blank alternative text and infographics and charts will have a link to a full description of the content.
- Some images include text as part of the image, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.5.
By October 2021, all images containing text will have a suitable text alternative to include the image text.
### Issue with hyperlinks, subheading formatting and keyboard operability
#### Hyperlinks
- Some hyperlinks throughout websites have too low of contrast, which can result in text being difficult to read, especially for people with low vision, poor eyesight or colour blindness. Additionally, some hyperlinks are not sufficiently describe making it difficult to determine purpose when using screen reader. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1.
All hyperlinks will have a standard 3:1 contract ratio and will be sufficiently described by October 2021.
#### Subheading formatting
- Not all subheadings have been formatted correctly using styles, making the site more difficult for users of assistive technology such as screen readers to access. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1.
Ensure all subheading have been formatted using styles by October 2021.
#### Keyboard operability
- Some menus, links, buttons, and other controls cannot be operated using the keyboard alone, which can cause problems for people who are blind, have low vision and/or hand tremors. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1.
We are working with our developers (GitHub) to implement fixes for these keyboard operability issues over the coming months.
#### Issues with Content Management System (CMS)
- The CMS code is being checked to ensure that it meets the robust accessibility criteria 4.1.1, 4.1.2 & 4.1.3.
This will be done as part of an accessibility review of the GitHub Content Management System to be completed in Autumn 2020.
#### Disproportionate burden
We do not consider any of the accessibility issues to be a disproportionate burden and aim to make the site fully compliant by October 2021.
#### Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
##### Third-party content
Our site includes third party content and functionality. This may direct you to a related service, link to another site or supporting documentation. We are not responsible for the accessibility of third-party content or to other sites we link to.
This includes:
- Slack
- Wonder.me
- Google Calendar
- Mozilla GitHub
- XNAT
We will provide an accessible alternative to any third-party content that isn’t compliant.
##### Third party platforms
We often create content which is hosted on third party platforms. This includes:
- Content we create for social media
- Data we supply to national databases
We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements. However, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platform itself.
## What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We want to provide the best possible experience for all our website visitors. To achieve this, we will:
- Fix known issues
- Check all new features in the GitHub and WIN Content Management System (CMS), which is used to create this website, for accessibility before they are made available
- Check all new content for accessibility
- Train all content editors on accessibility
- Carry out periodic accessibility checks involving WIN’s accessibility forum, WIN Access
## Preparation of this accessibility statement
This statement was prepared on 22nd October 2020. It will be reviewed again in February 2021.
This website was last tested in October 2020. The test was carried out by the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging’s Administration Team using all pages. The CMS has been audited for accessibility by the suppliers (GitHub) and the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging Administration Team.

# Why have we come together?
Funders and the Management Board of WIN have committed to develop both the infrastructure and culture to support ‘open neuroimaging’. There has been significant investment in computational infrastructure to support researchers in sharing their data, data acquisition methodology, experimental tasks and analysis code, in an open, transparent and reproducible manner.
As these stages near completion, we are entering the second phase of work to build awareness, provide training and increase uptake in the use of this infrastructure. The problem is that until now there have been no centralised resources, communication structures or identified community strategies in place to support researchers in using this new infrastructure.
