In 2021, the de facto gold-standard in vivo MRS analysis software, LCModel,1 transitioned from proprietary/paid to an open-source/free model. For 29 years, this software has fulfilled the demand for robust analysis workflows, while at the same time restricting access and dissuading continued development. We argue that this moment represents a golden opportunity for MRS developers and users to transition toward collaborative community-sourced workflows and datasets.
