Hi Lena, Lisa –
Perhaps relevant, although with a focus on FAIR-related practices: The FAIR Convergence Matrix (pre-print: ).
The Convergence Matrix is a questionnaire that prompts communities to list their implementation choices and challenges when going FAIR. We are experimenting with a nice user interface and output in nanopublication (linked data) format.
The tool is still in development, but once stabilised, will be openly available.
We now have about 30 “communities” that have responded to the questionnaire and the first round of analyses are underway. We aim to present the results at a co-localized event in Helsinki.
