ready FAIRsharing

General Information
A manually curated, searchable portal that maps metadata standards, databases/data repositories and data policies across disciplines, describing both the resources and the relationships between them. Each record in FAIRsharing is curated in collaboration with the maintainers of the resource themselves, ensuring that the metadata in the FAIRsharing registry is accurate and timely. Every record is manually reviewed at least once a year. Records can be collated into collections, based on a project, society or organisation, or Recommendations, where they are collated around a policy, such as a journal or funder data policy. FAIRsharing is also a community activity under the Research Data Alliance (RDA), Force11 and ELIXIR, among other global and discipline specific initiatives.
