FAIR services & infrastructure: Proposing an assessment framework for FAIR-enabling data services
To realise the full potential of a FAIR ecosystem in which research outputs can be easily shared and optimally reused, we have to look beyond the FAIRification of data and other digital objects – and also consider the infrastructure and services that act on those objects. Providers of data services need guidance and direction on how their services can be optimally ‘FAIR enabling’ and drive towards an optimal interplay between FAIR digital objects and services. In order to provide such guidance, FAIRsFAIR is developing a FAIR assessment framework for service owners: a framework that can be used to gauge where change is needed, together with actionable recommendations for incremental improvements. In this webinar we will present a first version of this assessment framework, as recently published on Zenodo (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4292599).
