Some of the recent FAIRsFAIR landscape analysis deliverables are available for consultation alongside a vision for the components of a FAIR Ecosystem.
The following deliverables are now open for comments by using the Google Drive version provided below.
Listed in this document are the fifteen minimum viable metrics proposed by FAIRsFAIR for the systematic assessment of FAIR data objects and detailed in the report FAIRsFAIR Data Object Assessment Metrics. We welcome your suggestions and remarks before 30 September 2020. Your valuable feedback will be used to refine and further improve the metrics.
This document is the first iteration of recommendations for making semantic artefact FAIR. These recommendations result from initial discussions during a brainstorming workshop organised by FAIRsFAIR as co-located event with the 14th RDA Plenary meeting in Helsinki. We are proposing 17 preliminary recommendations related to one or more of the FAIR principles and 10 best practice recommendations to improve the global FAIRness of semantic artefacts. These initial recommendations should not be considered as a gold standard but rather as a basis for discussion with the various stakeholders of the semantic community.
This report presents the results of the first year of Task 2.3 from the FAIRsFAIR project. It gives guidelines to enable features for repositories which allow them not only to host FAIR digital objects, but also to be FAIR themselves. The recommendations were collected in the workshop “Building the data landscape of the future: FAIR Semantics and FAIR Repositories” (22 October 2019, Espoo Finland) that was hosted by this task together with the FAIRsFAIR task 2.2. It derived input from more than 70 participants from 6 communities: the European Life Sciences Infrastructure for Biological Information (ELIXIR), the European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association (EISCAT), the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS), the European network of Long-Term Ecosystem Research sites (eLTER), and the Data Publisher for Earth & Environmental Science ( Pangea). The background of participants lied in infrastructures, research and libraries.
This report marks the first milestone of the task. It presents a survey of existing FAIR assessment frameworks, a proposed set of guiding principles and desiderata for the FAIR assessment framework that will be constructed, and three ‘FAIR service assessment’ case studies. We are seeking wide feedback on this report to inform subsequent work and, ultimately, feed into a FAIR assessment framework for data services that delivers clear direction and value to service owners and the community at large.
