Hi Dan,

Your question is very timely.

The criteria for moving papers from the Insight Journal to the Review
directory "used to be" to have at least three reviews and a good rating
(4 to 5).

However, we have not succeeded in motivating the community to post
reviews. Therefore, in the last release (ITK 3.8) we went with simply
moving papers for which a certain need was established in the community,
in several cases the need was defined as whether someone has asked for
those functionalities in the mailing list.

In the particular case of the articles that we are listing, they refer
to ongoing collaborations with NAMIC groups who are working on brain

Note that these are not intended to be *the only* papers to be moved
in this release, we are simply starting to populate this list. Please
feel free to add more entries to it.

Large number of downloads and views are certainly other good measures
of an identified need for a functionality in the toolkit.

We welcome any suggestions on how to do this better....
