OUTPUTS FAIRsharing Logo

Completed and RDA-endorsed

  1. FAIRsharing registry - A curated, informative and educational registry of interlinked descriptions of (i) standards (to identify, report, and cite data and metadata), (ii) repositories (databases, knowledgebases), and (iii) journal publisher and funder data policies in all disciplines. FAIRsharing guides consumers to discover, select and use these resources with confidence, and producers to make their resources more visible, widely adopoted and cited.
  2. Recommendations - A two pages summary to provide guidance to users and producers of standards and repositories, describing how they can best select and describe these resources, and advice to policy makers on how they can best recommend these resources in their data policies.

RELATED ACTIVITIES

To promote further adoption and drive improvement of the adopted FAIRsharing registry, the WG contributes to a number of activities with other RDA groups; these activities reflect the requests and needs of the community, and are open and inclusive for all stakeholders. The WG community network encompasses repositories mantainers and developers, standard-developing organizations, journals and journal publishers, funders, librarians, data stewards, and other scholarly organizations and alliances. Current ongoing activities are listed below.

  1. Align data policy from funders and publishers - This activity is a collaboration with the RDA Research Funders and Stakeholders on Open Research and Data Management and Practices IG, and the Data Policy Standardization and Implementation IG. The objective is to provide recommendation on how to improve this alignment, and to identify a common set of policy metadata features all stakeholders want to see implemented the FAIRsharing registry.
  2. Map repositories features across initiatives - This activity is a collaboration with a new RDA group being formed, as result of a discussion session we run at Plenary 17, where we brought together a number of stakeholders that have defined features and criteria to certify repositories, guide their selections, and define good practice. This new group will identify a common set of repository metadata features all stakeholders want to see implemented also registries, such as FAIRsharing.

"Scholarly Communication in Times of Crisis" report, by RoRI & C-19 rapid review group

by Susanna-Assunta Sansone

*Sharing on behalf of RoRI and the C-19 rapid review group, FAIRsharing is part of.* We have seen the benefits of open science during the pandemic and a new report from RoRI and the C-19 rapid review group shows that papers on COVID-19were published faster, and were open access, but open data and preprinting remained stubbornly low. There is no magic bullet. If society is to truly benefit from open science, all stakeholders in the scholarly publishing ecosystem need to intensify efforts to improve the situation.
