We present an extension to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) to specialise it for diffusion weighted imaging. Detailed attribution of experimental parameters to regions of an aquisition is made possible with plain text files which remain compliant with BIDS. Complex diffusion encoding, slice-level diffusion encoding, and data collected with varying experimental parameters throughout the acquisition are all supported. Scope exists for reporting on RF pulses and gradient pulses in general within the sequence, without restriction to diffusion pulses.
