Application to perform curation of neuroscientific literature.

Project description

Getting Started | Upgrade | Releases | Roadmap | Status

For the Annotation Viewer or the integration with theOpenMinTeDplatform, please refer to thisbranch.


Desktop application to perform systematic and collaborative curation of neuroscientific literature.

This is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the Python module NeuroAnnotation Toolbox (NAT).

This framework has been described in details in the following open-access paper:

With NeuroCurator, annotations are: - traceable, - reusable across projects, - structured with controlled vocabularies.

Getting Started


After having installed Git and ImageMagick 6:

pip3 install neurocurator

If you would like to simplify the installation with Miniconda:

conda create --name nc python=3.7
conda activate nc
conda install beautifulsoup4 gitpython lxml numpy pandas scipy
pip install neurocurator




If you have used Miniconda:

conda activate nc


pip install --upgrade neurocurator

If you have used Miniconda:

conda activate nc
pip install --upgrade neurocurator


Versions and their notable changes are listed in the releases section.



  1. Make the annotations publishable into a Blue Brain Nexus instance.

  2. Stabilize NeuroCurator and NAT (Software Architecture).


  1. Integrate fully the Annotation Viewer into NeuroCurator.

  2. Semi-automate the Knowledge Extraction process.

Done (latest first)

  • Remove legacy dependencies in NeuroCurator (Qt 4 and Python 3.4).

  • Integrate OpenMinTeD annotations into the literature curation framework.

  • Visualize NeuroCurator and OpenMinTeD annotations directly on PDFs.

  • Make NeuroCurator easily installable, especially by scientists.

Updated on 20.07.18.


Created during 2016.

Ongoing stabilization and reengineering in the branch refactor-architecture.

The branch refactor-architecture is not intended to be used by end-users.

New features, bug fixes and improvements are done on the reengineered code sections.

When a reengineered code section is stable, it’s merged into the branch master and a release is published.
