FAIRsharing at SciDataCon - IDW 2018

  1. 1. Susanna-Assunta Sansone (on behalf of the FAIRsharing Team) Associate Professor, Department of Engineering Science Associate Director, Oxford e-Research Centre University of Oxford, UK International Data Week, Botswana, November 2018 How making digital objects FAIR can democratise data publishing
  2. 2. Working Groups outputs: 1. A registry of curated and interlinked records on o standards (for identifying, reporting, and citing data and metadata), o databases, repositories (and knowledge-bases) and o data policies (from journals, publishers, funders, other organizations) 1. Related recommendations o to guide users and the producers of standards and databases to select and describe these resources, or to recommend them in data policies
  3. 3. Accelerate the discovery, selection and use of these resources Increase their visibility, reuse, adoption and citation
  4. 4. Coverage and classification
  5. 5. It is not just a registry, because it offers tools and services, and provides content for and interoperates with other FAIR-supportive tools and services
  6. 6. Databases and data repositories Community standards, focusing on metadata and identifier schemas Formats Terminologies Guidelines Interlinking standards, databases, repositories and data policies Data policies by funders, journals and other organizations Identifiers Ready for use, implementation, or recommendation In development Status uncertain Deprecated as subsumed or superseded All records are manually curated in-house, verified and claimed by the community behind each resource
  7. 7. Tracking evolution
  8. 8. Tracking evolution
  9. 9. Example of a record describing a data resource
  10. 10. Examples of use and adoption by publishers
  11. 11. Top 30 resources recommended by journals/publishers Totals: 184 databases recommended, 33 standards Most recommendations for a database 13 Most recommendations for a standard 9
  12. 12. A core element of the FAIR ecosystem
  13. 13. A set of principles to enhance the value of all digital resources Developed and endorsed by researchers, service providers, publishers, funding agencies, industry partners; including but not limited to individuals part of:
  14. 14. Ensures that standards, databases, repositories, policies are: • Findable, e.g., by providing DOIs, functionality to register, claim, maintain, interlink, classify, search and discover them • Accessible, e.g., identifying their level of openness and/or licence type • Interoperable, e.g., highlighting which repositories implement the same standards to structure and exchange data • Reusable, e.g., knowing the coverage of a standard and its level of endorsement by a number of repositories should encourage its use or extension in neighbouring domains, rather than reinvention FAIRsharing enables the FAIR principles
  15. 15. Two tools to be launched as part of an EOSC project
  16. 16. • FAIRsharing works with the FAIR metrics WG to serve as: • Registry to describe digital assets, such as databases/repositories, standards, policies, enhancing their discoverability (, citability (DOIs) • Look up service for identifier schemas and standards (phase 1: now) • Validation service against metadata standards (phase 2: planned) FAIRsharing and the FAIRmetrics also part of: A proposed core set of 14 semi-quantitative metrics (measurable indicators) for the evaluation of FAIRness
  17. 17. • FAIRsharing interoperates with FAIR assessment tools, such as: • FAIRshake • FAIR Evaluator FAIRsharing and the FAIR assessment also part of:
