Summer reading for the Danish RDM community:

10 Jul 2020
Groups audience: 

Dear DM Forum and RDA-DK members,
We are very happy to announce that the Danish eLearning website 'How to FAIR' is now finished and available online at
We are very proud of the product of more than a year of hard work - and we hope you are too!
The website consists of four main components: 1) Why FAIR?, 2) What is FAIR?, 3) How to FAIR, and 4) A quiz. The target audience of the website is PhD students, researchers and research support staff. However, others are also welcome to go through the material, as it is openly accessible to all under a CC-BY license here:
Now that the website is live, we move on to the next phase of the project: generating awareness for the website and ensuring that the website is used e.g. in the teaching of PhD students across Denmark.
We need your help to make this happen. In particular, we would like to ask you to:
· be an ambassador for the website in your capacity as a National Forum representative
· raise awareness for the website, for example through your social media profiles or on institutional webpages
· take the website back to your institution and initiate the process of integrating it into PhD educational programs.
To make promoting the website a little easier, we have prepared a video trailer, available here:, and this promotional text for communication to end-users and colleagues:
We are pleased to present a new resource for Research Data Management: a website focused on how you can make research data more FAIR:
This website will take you on a deep dive into the subject matter of FAIR research data. Over the course of about two hours, it will show you that FAIR is not necessarily a time-consuming administrative mantra, but a set of principles that makes your research more efficient, transparent and sustainable. You will be shown short video clips of researchers in Engineering, Humanities, Health Sciences, and Social Sciences. Recommendations, standards and examples are given for quantitative, qualitative and sensitive data. These will guide you through the steps you can take before, during and after your own research project to help you produce FAIRer research data in a way that makes sense for you.
Already know everything there is to know about FAIR? Why not test your knowledge with our FAIR quiz?
The website can be used directly by researchers or as part of Research Data Management training. Link directly to the examples you need, or take your trainees through the quiz and debate the answers in class.
We hope you will enjoy the website! Many thanks for your support in the past year. And please give us feedback on anything you like - or would like to have changed :)
Best wishes and have a great summer!
On behalf of the entire project team,
Mareike Buss (CBS), Katrine Flindt Holmstrand (DTU), Asger Væring Larsen (SDU), Evgenios Vlachos (SDU), and Daniella Deutz (SDU)
