Abstract: ModelDB is a curated database of published models in the broad domain of computational neuroscience. It addresses the need for access to such models in order to evaluate their validity and extend their use. It can handle computational models expressed in any textual form, including procedural or declarative languages (e.g. C++, XML dialects) and source code written for any simulation environment. The model source code doesn't even have to reside inside ModelDB; it just has to be available from some publicly accessible online repository or WWW site. ModelDB is curated in order to maximize the scientific utility of its contents. The ideal model entry would contain "original" (author-written) source code, especially if it works and reproduces at least one figure from a published article. Original source code has tremendous value because it is what the authors used to generate the simulation results from which they derived their published insights and conclusions. High quality "third party" re-implementations of published models are also relevant, especially those involving models that are of wide interest. [Information of the supplier]
