WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use WG Outputs and Recommendations

By Marieke Willems

This statement describes the background, efforts and outputs of the WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use Working Group. This group was chartered to develop criteria, procedures for assessment of research data fitness for use, along with a means to communicate this assessment to others. It concluded with development of a) criteria for research dataset fitness for use compared against the CoreTrustSeal requirements and FAIR principles, and b) a checklist for evaluation of dataset for fitness for use meant to supplement the CoreTrustSeal Repository Certification process. The checklist carries with it numerous caveats that exemplify the broad landscape surrounding dataset fitness assessment that this working group has mapped.
