Impact: Provides 17 topic-based, community submitted brief guides that can be used by the research community to understand how they can make their research (data and software) more FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).

The Top 10 FAIR Data & Software Things are brief guides (stand alone, self paced training materials), called "Things", that can be used by the research community to understand how they can make their research (data and software) more FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).

Great work, thank you. I have noticed that you do not have a specific activity on standards, and you may want to consider adding one to search, filter standards in FAIRsharing, an endorsed RDA output, since in this resource the repositories are interlinked to the (data and metadata) standards they implement. This will inform the users on if a standards is actually used. Feel free to get an example from the FAQs in the Educational page. Thanks.

There are several Things that address what I believe you highlight above. Have a look at:
Humanities: Historical Research: Thing 10: Policies
Biomedical Data Producers, Stewards, and Funders: Thing 8: Indexing repositories to enable findability
Imaging (several Things include FAIRsharing-related exercises)
Both PDF attachments can be found at http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3409968. RDA will hopefully be adding the 2nd attachment PDF to this page soon.
Hope this helps?

Thank you all for this wonderful resource!
I would just like to ask if it would perhaps be possible to put in the headers of the pages which top 10 you're currently in; the pdf version of these top 10's is quite long and it is easy to get lost in and track back in which top 10 you are when you are searching for resources.
I also noticed that the links to the dryad read me file are broken (page 20, 62). Perhaps the Cornell template is a good replacement? https://cornell.app.box.com/v/ReadmeTemplate

Thanks Esther for your feedback!
I've made the updates to the Dryad links here:
I'll work w/ RDA so that we can emphasize the living version of the Top 10 FAIR Data & Software Things (re: your 2nd question):
Thank you again!
