New FAIRsharing Community Curation Programme: Call for Participants

  • Creator
  • #66793

    Allyson Lister

    We are proud to announce the official launch of the FAIRsharing Community Curation Programme! Together with our initial set of community curators, who have helped us prototype the programme and have already received attribution and other benefits, we are now actively seeking additional community curators across all subject areas (Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Humanities and the Social Sciences). Although software itself is not within the remit of FAIRsharing, we do describe repositories and databases, and one of the areas I wish to have increased coverage within FAIRsharing is in the software repository domain. We do describe tools and APIs related to databases and standards, and we also have many tools that access FAIRsharing’s API. All three of these are areas in which we would be happy to have community curators focus. I’m hoping to recruit Software Repository Community Curators as part of this programme, and I think there might be some interested parties within this group.
    The current call will run through August, with successful participants being contacted by September. Please fill out this form to let us know you’re interested, and get in touch with us via email or Twitter if you have any questions. For more information about the tasks community curators do as well as the benefits, please see our information on joining the programme.
    This initiative is also supported by my RDA / EOSC Future Domain Ambassador for standards, repositories and policies award, as the FAIRsharing Content and Community Lead, and it is also closely linked the work and outputs of the RDA FAIRsharing WG.
    As an individual consider joining us, or please feel free to disseminate our open call to join the FAIRsharing Community Curator Programme across any relevant mailing lists and channels you may think would be relevant. Apologies in advance for any cross posting that may result.
