ready The FAIR Principles

Abbreviation:FAIR


General Information
One of the grand challenges of data-intensive science is to facilitate knowledge discovery by assisting humans and machines in their discovery of, access to, integration and analysis of, task-appropriate scientific data and their associated algorithms and workflows. The term "FAIR" was launched at a Lorentz workshop in 2014, attended by a wide range of academic, corporate, and governmental stakeholders. The resulting draft FAIR Principles were initially made available for public comment via the websites of peer-initiatives such as, for example, Force11. Based on this feedback, the final Principles were published in 2016 (https://www.nature.com/articles/sdata201618). FAIR is a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable. These guidelines provide advice for those wishing to enhance the (re)usability of their data holdings. Distinct from peer initiatives that focus on the human scholar, the FAIR Principles put specific emphasis on enhancing the ability of machines to automatically find and use the data, in addition to supporting its reuse by individuals.

Implementing Databases (2)
FAIRsharing
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.

4TU.Centre for Research Data
4TU.Centre for Research Data (short: 4TU.ResearchData) was started in 2008 as an initiative of the three technical universities in the Netherlands – Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, and the University of Twente. The ambition was, and still is, to create and maintain a national state-of-the-art facility for storing and preserving science and engineering research data and for making those data openly accessible. The data archive has been fully operational since 2010 and it has evolved to become a trusted and certified repository for science and engineering. By publishing data-sets via 4TU.ResearchData you will make your data FAIR. Every single data-set is assigned a DOI and metadata (F), the archive is accessible 24/7 online worldwide via https protocol (A), the data-files adhere to community and preservation standards (I), and a readme-file and usage license is provided for every data-set (R). This archive is accessible and usable for any researcher from the science and engineering disciplines. Please visit our website for more details.
