Sharing neuroimaging data is an important development that has the potential to be scaled up with the new Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) standard. Existing tools to converting data to BIDS often require programming skills or are tailored to specific institutes, datasets or data formats. Here we introduce BIDScoin, a cross-platform, flexible, free and open-source converter that provides a graphical user interface to help users finding their way in the BIDS standard, and supports plugins to extend its functionality. We show its design and demonstrate how it can be applied to a downloadable tutorial dataset.
