M3.5 Draft Description of FAIRsFAIR’s Transition Support Programme for Repositories | Zenodo

“FAIRsFAIR is working to better define good practice for repositories through our involvement in certification efforts that enable FAIR data. This draft document describes a proposed programme of support which will help repositories to adopt these emerging good practices. There is a focus on supporting FAIR data provision, improved handling and integration of metadata, and an increased emphasis on data stewardship to ensure data remains FAIR in the long term.

This brief description outlines some of the actions that can help repositories on their journey towards better alignment with the FAIR data principles and the support that FAIRSFAIR could provide. Please help us to shape the work FAIRsFAIR will do over the remainder of the project to develop and provide support for repositories of all types. We eagerly look for your feedback on:

the recommended actions – do these reflect your repository mission and aims? Have we missed something? 

the support that FAIRsFAIR could provide – are some of the suggested support areas more helpful for your repository than others? Is there anything missing? 

Please share your feedback with us by August 21, 2020 by adding comments to the working version using ‘Suggesting’ mode. From the feedback we receive, FAIRsFAIR will prioritise its activities to develop guidance and provide support. The prioritised plan will be shared in the final version of the support programme in October 2020 (D3.5 Transition Support Programme for Repositories).

Please help us to shape the work we will do over the remainder of the project to develop and provide support for repositories of all types. In particular we are looking for your feedback on:

the recommended actions – do these reflect your repository mission and aims? Have we missed something?

FAIRsFAIR Invites Endorsement of TRUST Principles | FAIRsFAIR

“FAIRsFAIR is inviting digital repositories and associated organisations to endorse the TRUST Principles for digital repositories. The TRUST Principles, developed within the RDA Community and recently published in the Nature Research journal Scientific Data, offer guidance for maintaining the trustworthiness of digital repositories, especially those responsible for the stewardship of research data….”

Virtual OR2020 meetings – Open Repositories 2021

“Findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) data are an increasingly important aspect of open scholarship. Increasing the production and use of FAIR data requires a wide range of stakeholders across the research ecosystem to actively play their parts. FAIRsFAIR – Fostering Fair Data Practices in Europe – aims to supply practical solutions for applying the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle, which can be included in the strategies that research organisations and implemented to enable a FAIR data culture.

This 90 minute virtual workshop will focus on the work FAIRsFAIR carries out in collaboration with repositories  to enable them to play their role in helping to make and keep data FAIR over time. We will present an early draft of a transition support programme for repositories wishing to improve their capacity to support FAIR data production and use. Following an overview of the draft programme, attendees will participate in group discussions and activities to review and discuss the draft support programme, consider how it might be applied within their own repositories, and how they can support and promote relevant aspects of the programme within their institutions and the wider community….”
