NiMARE is a Python package for performing meta-analyses, and derivative analyses using meta-analytic data, of the neuroimaging literature. While meta-analytic packages exist which implement one or two algorithms each, NiMARE provides a standard syntax for performing a wide range of analyses and for interacting with databases of coordinates and images from fMRI studies (e.g., brainspell, Neurosynth, and NeuroVault).

If you publish research that uses nimare you have to cite it as follows:

NiMARE provides several workflows as command-line interfaces, including ALE meta-analysis, meta-analytic coactivation modeling (MACM) analysis, peaks2maps image reconstruction, and contrast map meta-analysis. Each workflow should generate a boilerplate paragraph with details about the workflow and citations that can be used in a manuscript.
