Immediate Action Items:

Ongoing Action Items:


  1. Discuss immediate action items from the last meeting.
    • Ahmet disseminated joint mechanics data for three specimens: oks001, oks002, and oks006. He informed the group about specific data missing in oks003 and oks007 folders in the in-house data management system. Robb and Tara will follow up to provide missing information.
    • Craig provided documentation of meshing workflow in relevant wiki page. Snehal will test it.
    • Snehal talked to Anatomy Gifts Registry and learned that it will take some time to receive specimens from young donors.
    • Snehal identified a smaller framing system similar to 80/20 for building the optical thickness measurement system frame. It was ordered and will be delivered this week.
  2. Discuss potential publications.
    • Snehal received information from Scientific Data regarding the suitability of the Open Knee(s) data for publication. One option is to have a large paper including all the data. The other is to submit multiple papers simultaneously for theme based review.
    • Ahmet recommended submission of multiple papers as three parts: Part 1 for imaging, Part 2 for tibiofemoral joint testing, and Part 3 for patellofemoral joint testing. Parts 2 and 3 may need to be combined. Tissue testing will follow afterwards as a Part 4 manuscript.
    • The discussion on tissue testing manuscript needs to continue to decide on how to present the tissue mechanical testing data. This manuscript may be divided further based on focusing on tissue types for separate publications or it may be submitted as one set depending on the kind of data assessment/analysis added.
    • The team viewed the Scientific Data website for recommended manuscript outline to discuss its individual components. Lead authors of the studies will start developing an outline of their respective Open Knee(s) data manuscripts accordingly.
    • The group also discussed if there are any conflicts in uploading Open Knee(s) data to the journal site or sites recommended by the journal, e.g. Dryad. Even though the data is being disseminated on Simtk, other sites can be used to host the data as submitted for publication. The Simtk dissemination will be an evolving process which will eventually include the analyses whereas the journal site can be a mirror for the data set as it is published.
  3. Decide immediate action items for the next meeting.
    • See immediate action items above.
  4. Other.
    • None noted.
