FAIR Data Maturity Model: core criteria to assess the implementation level of the FAIR data principles

The RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group develops as an RDA Recommendation a common set of core assessment criteria for FAIRness and a generic and expandable self-assessment model for measuring the maturity level of a dataset. The aim is not to develop yet another FAIR assessment approach but to build on existing initiatives, looking at common elements and allowing the group to identify core elements for the evaluation of FAIRness. That will increase the coherence and interoperability of existing or emerging FAIR assessment frameworks and it will ensure the combination and compatibility of their results in a meaningful way.

 

The WG brings together stakeholders from different scientific and research disciplines, the industry and public sector, who are active and/or interested in the FAIR data principles and in particular in assessment criteria and methodologies for evaluating their real-life uptake and implementation level.

Re: [fair_maturity] Workshop #2 Report

Keith,
thank you very much for sharing your thoughts! I very much agree with most of your points, especially those regarding the need to set up and sustainably operate the necessary infrastructures for curation and storage, both for data and the associated metadata.
However, there are two areas where my views might be somewhat differing from what you outlined:

Google spreadsheet for your contributions

Dear members of the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group,
As announced earlier this week, we have created a Google spreadsheet [1] to
support the further work of the Working Group in developing the core
assessment criteria. This spreadsheet includes four worksheets:
1. Introduction, with an overview of context, objective and approach
2. Landscaping exercise, with the results of the initial analysis of
existing approaches
3. Development, with sections for each of the principles where you can enter

Re: [fair_maturity] Workshop #2 Report

Hello to all
Is it important to include access rights and conditions in the evaluation of FAIRness?
Yes and should be linked to the extend to which machine readable metadata exist for access/use and not their openess. As the paper righly highlights"FAIR is not equal to open".
Under which area (F, A, I, R, beyond FAIR) or principle should it be evaluated?
A1.2
