Electroencephalography (EEG) recordings have been rarely included in large-scale studies. This is arguably not due to a lack of information that lies in EEG recordings but mainly on account of methodological issues. In many cases, particularly in clinical, pediatric and aging populations, the EEG has a high degree of artifact contamination and the quality of EEG recordings often substantially differs between subjects. Although there exist a variety of standardized preprocessing methods to clean… 
The Maryland analysis of developmental EEG (MADE) pipeline.
TLDR
The Maryland analysis of developmental EEG (MADE) pipeline is developed as an automated preprocessing pipeline compatible with EEG data recorded with different hardware systems, different populations, levels of artifact contamination, and length of recordings.
HAPPILEE: The Harvard Automated Processing Pipeline In Low Electrode Electroencephalography, a standardized software for low density EEG and ERP data
TLDR
The HAPPILEE pipeline is proposed as a standardized, automated pipeline optimized for EEG recordings with low density channel layouts of any size and includes post-processing reports of data and pipeline quality metrics to facilitate the evaluation and reporting of data quality and processing-related changes to the data in a standardized manner.
Automated Pipeline for Infants Continuous EEG (APICE): a flexible pipeline for developmental studies
TLDR
An Automated Pipeline for Infants Continuous EEG (APICE), which is fully automated, flexible, and modular, and tested the combination of APICE with common data cleaning methods such as Independent Component Analysis and Denoising Source Separation.
EPOS: EEG Processing Open-Source Scripts
TLDR
A tutorial-like EEG (pre-)processing pipeline to achieve an automated method based on the semi-automated analysis proposed by Delorme and Makeig, and is compared with a selection of existing approaches.
Decomposing age effects in EEG alpha power
TLDR
It is hypothesized that previously reported age-related alpha power differences will disappear when absolute power is adjusted for the a periodic signal component, and the test–retest reliability of the aperiodic and aperiodics-adjusted signal components will be assessed.
Removal of eye-blinking artifacts by ICA in cross-modal long-term EEG recording
TLDR
It was found that, firstly, down sampling is an effective way to reduce the computation time in ICA, and dimension reduction by PCA was also a way to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of ICA.
EEG Data Quality: Determinants and Impact in a Multicenter Study of Children, Adolescents, and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
TLDR
It was found that EEG data quality was strongly related to demographic characteristics, but not to methodological factors, and it was showed that poor data quality significantly increases spectral power beyond effects of maturation and symptom severity.

Removing electroencephalographic artifacts by blind source separation.
TLDR
The results on EEG data collected from normal and autistic subjects show that ICA can effectively detect, separate, and remove contamination from a wide variety of artifactual sources in EEG records with results comparing favorably with those obtained using regression and PCA methods.
The PREP pipeline: standardized preprocessing for large-scale EEG analysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ordinary average referencing improves the signal-to-noise ratio, but that noisy channels can contaminate the results and a multi-stage robust referencing scheme is introduced to deal with the noisy channel-reference interaction.
