OUTPUTS

COMPLETED AND ENDORSED BY RDA:
  1. FAIRsharing - A registry of curated and interlinked records on standards (for identifying, reporting, and citing data and metadata), repositories, and journal publisher and funder data policies in all disciplines. These will provide curated, community-vetted descriptions and knowledge graphs representing these resources and their interlinks.

  2. Recommendations to guide users and the producers of these resources to select and describe them, facilitating discovery, adoption and reuse, or to recommend them in data policies.

In 2019 these outputs were formally adopted by the RDA.

IN PROGRESS:
  1. Data Repository Selection: Criteria That Matter (pre-print) - Work with journals and journal publishers (Taylor & Francis, eLife, Elsevier, F1000, GigaScience, PLOS, Wiley, Springer Nature, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, EMBO Press, Hindawi), in collaboration with DataCite, on a set of criteria for the identification and selection of those data repositories that accept research data submissions. FAIRsharing will enable the display, filter and search of these repositories, based on these criteria, and better connect journals/publishers data policies to the resources recommended.
  2. FAIR-enabling activities - Collaborative activities related to several aspects of making FAIR a reality.
