OSFair2017 Workshop | FAIRSharing


Published on

Rafael Jimenez presents the FAIRSharing on behalf of Peter McQuilton, Susanna-Assunta Sansone & the FAIRsharing team | OSFair2017 Workshop

Workshop title: How FAIR friendly is your data catalogue?

Workshop overview:
This workshop will build upon the work planned by the EOSCpilot data interoperability task and the BlueBridge workshop held on April 3 at the RDA meeting. We will investigate common mechanisms for interoperation of data catalogues that preserve established community standards, norms and resources, while simplifying the process of being/becoming FAIR. Can we have a simple interoperability architecture based on a common set of metadata types? What are the minimum metadata requirements to expose FAIR data to EOSC services and EOSC users?

OSFair2017 Workshop | FAIRSharing

  1. 1. Rafael C Jimenez on behalf of Peter McQuilton, Susanna-Assunta Sansone and the FAIRsharing team
  2. 2. A web-based, curated, and searchable portal that monitors the development and evolution of data and metadata standards, across all disciplines, inter-related to databases/repositories and data policies FAIRsharing has grown organically from, which covered standards, databases and policies in the life, environmental and biomedical sciences. All data is manually curated and reviewed by FAIRsharing curators and the maintainers of the resources themselves * *
  3. 3. Data policies Databases Content standards Formats Terminologies Guidelines Models/Formats = Conceptual model, conceptual schema, exchange formats Terminologies = Controlled vocabularies, taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies etc. Guidelines = Minimum information reporting requirements, checklists Mapping a complex and evolving landscape
  4. 4. Content standards Data policies Databases Formats Terminologies Guidelines By grass-roots groups, e.g.: By standard organizations, e.g.: Mapping a complex and evolving landscape
  5. 5. My funder’s data policy recommends the use of established standards, but which are widely endorsed and applicable to my crop data? We need a standard for sharing social science data, what’s out there and who should we talk to? I have some old rice genomic data in format X, which is now deprecated; what format has replaced X? Which are the mature standards and standards-compliant databases that we should recommend to our authors? How can FAIRsharing help you?
  6. 6. Data Policy FAIRsharing visualizes relationships
  7. 7. • For more information on FAIR/BioSharing, please see our database paper: • FAIRsharing is developing an API and shares data with a number of other resources including the ELIXIR TeSS training portal and the Japanese Integbio database catalogue • FAIRsharing works with publishers and funders to create and refine their data policies • FAIRsharing is an ELIXIR-UK contributed resource and has active community working groups in Research Data Alliance and Force11 • Go to to add your standard, data repository or policy to FAIRsharing.
