Short presentation of Sharing Rewards and Credit (SHARC) IG

SHARC is now a recognised and endorsed interest group within RDA (Research Data Alliance).  It is seeking to unpack and improve crediting and rewarding mechanisms in the data/resources sharing process (see link to the previous Research Data Alliance BoF meeting here:
https://www.rd-alliance.org/how-give-credit-scientists-their-involvement-making-data-samples-available-sharing-rda-9th-plenary).

At present, seven different communities are represented in the group:

Biology and Biomedicine (7 ppl.),

Information Sciences and Technology (3 ppl.),

Geospatial data (1 ppl.),

Marine Biology (1 ppl.),

Biodiversity (4 ppl.),

Agriculture (4 ppl.),

Industrial Ecology (1 ppl.),

Bioethics (4 ppl.).

 

The issues discussed here are transversal to many academic areas and communities.

 If you are not represented, join us!

RDA-SHARC feedback SURVEY - Evaluating Fairness in the data sharing practise

 
Dear colleague,
 
The RDA-SHARC (SHAring Reward & Credit) interest group is working to improve crediting and rewarding mechanisms for scientists who share their data for potential reuse. In this perspective, assessing compliance with FAIR practice and increasing understandability of FAIRness criteria for everyone (data scientists AND non specialists, particularly for researchers and evaluators of projects and careers) are critical steps.
