Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) studies can generate extensive and complex datasets. Datasets can be organized idiosyncratically across (and even within) labs. However, sharing data and reproducing results without the added challenge of parsing lab-specific file organization is paramount to open science. Sharing of MRS data that is independent of lab-specific practices would greatly aid transparency and reusability. Here, we present an extension to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) specification for MRS data. MRS-BIDS adopts the established tenets of standardization of BIDS and applies them to MRS data while considering the nuances relevant to MRS methodology.
