The FAIR4RS Team: Working Together to Make Research Software FAIR
The FAIR For Research Software Working Group (FAIR4RS WG) is leading the research software community in the crucial step of agreeing how to apply the FAIR principles to research software, including defining the principles and adoption guidelines. This group was convened under the Research Software Alliance (ReSA), the Research Data Alliance (RDA), and FORCE11 (the Future of Research Communication and Escholarship). This paper explains how the community collaboration to enable this has been built, as an example of a model for teamwork across the research software community, and which could potentially be used in other fields and domains as well, as this is an interdisciplinary and global effort.
