What is it about?

The F1000R NEUBIAS Gateway is introduced to gather scientific contributions (papers, posters, training material) in Bioimage Analysis and to build a new resource for the work of bioimage analysts and scientists, who develop tools and knowledge in image analysis for Life Science. This editorial brings to the reader the rationale behind the creation of the Gateway and examples of what contributions are targeted.

Why is it important?

Bioimage Analysis is becoming critically important in Biology but the scientific description of Bioimage Analysis workflows is currently not being given, in a majority of journals, the space and attention that are required to ensure the reproducibility of the workflows by other scientists. This paper aims to attract scientists towards recognizing this fact and to explain the vision of the Gateway's advisors, to tackle this bottleneck by publishing papers and training materials, and to construct a reference resource in Bioimage Analysis that may improve the efficiency and use of image analysis methods in Life Science.


Bioimage Analysts are new professional in Life Science. They have just created their community and need new and visible resources to increase the recognition of their work, its importance, and to exchange knowledge and methods faster. The Gateway presented in this paper may provide a forum that has been missing for a long time, aimed to help life scientists find and reuse the powerful methods they need, while helping bioimage analysts to support their career path with tangible publications for their work that, too often and in the best case, gets buried in supplementary materials.
