FAIR data maturity model: workshop 8 and short survey

  • Creator
  • #104921

    Dear members of the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group,
    We were very pleased to see many members joining the calls and contributing
    to the discussions. The editorial team has assembled a report, including
    the topics covered and the views shared during the calls. The report can be
    accessed here .
    As you are aware, ten tests were executed by several volunteers using a
    template. Testers were invited to compare the indicators against (1) (FAIR)
    self-assessment methodologies and (2) digital objects. Consequently, as
    mentioned during our calls, *testers have formulated requests to*
    – either upgrade or downgrade the priority of some indicators; and
    – add, remove, combine or reformulate some indicators.
    For the sake of transparency, we have bundled these requests into a short
    survey . May we kindly ask you to
    share your opinion? The survey is completely anonymous, does not require
    you to sign up for an account and is composed of only 27 YES/NO questions.
    Your input is extremely important and reaching a global consensus on the
    indicators and their priorities is fundamental to this Working Group. *We
    thank you for your devoting 5 minutes of your time to our **survey*
    *. *
    Based on the conclusions of the survey and the discussions on the open
    issues on GitHub
    , the
    editorial team will create a final version of the indicators and make the
    associated changes to the guidelines document by early April 2020. At that
    time, the FAIR data checklist will also be finalised. The latters will be
    proposed for a formal public review starting mid-April. Further
    communication about the formal review period will be shared with the
    members of the WG in due time.
    Please note that as mid-April is getting closer, the survey will close on
    Wednesday 8 April 2020
    Should you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us directly or via
    the mailing list.
