We invite all researchers to actively contribute to the content on the openfnirs website. The simplest way is to engage in the openfnirs forum. Also, if you have an fNIRS resource that is openly accessible to others, be it software or hardware or something else, please let us know and we will link to it from openfnirs. We are also happy to create pages on openfnirs and give you edit permission for those pages for describing your resource. In special circumstances, we can create a sub-domain of openfnirs for your resource for you to manage, such as opennirs.openfnirs.org.
