Description FAIRsharing and Data Stewardship Wizard 
Organisation Czech Technical University in Prague
Country Czech Republic 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution The Data Stewardship Wizard (DSW) is a tool for data management planning. Prof. Sansone's group runs FAIRsharing, a community-recognized curated, informative and educational resource that interlinks community standards to databases, repositories and data policies (by funders and policies). We have worked with the DSW team to surface the right level of information from FAIRsharing to the DSW users, via the respective tools' APIs.
Collaborator Contribution The DSW has accessed relevant FAIRsharing content and displaied for selection to the users, when they define a data management plan.
Impact The questioning in the Data Stewardship Wizard is modelled after the conversation a researcher could have with a data management expert; most questions are closed questions with a limited set of possible answers. Answers on standards and repositories are obtained from linked services, such as FAIRsharing, as illustrated in this figure: https://datascience.codata.org/articles/10.5334/dsj-2019-059/dsj-18-954-g1.png/?action=download

Description FAIRsharing and the Centre for Open Science 
Organisation Center for Open Science (COS)
Country United States 
Sector Private 
PI Contribution The Center for Open Science (COS, cos.io) is a non-profit technology company with a mission to increase the openness, integrity, and reproducibility of research. It works to achieve this mission through meta-scientific research to quantify the barriers to reproducibility, advocacy and outreach to stakeholder organizations to remove those barriers, summarized in the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) guidelines (cos.io/top), and builds infrastructure to enable these solutions (osf.io). Based in Pro. Sansone group in Oxford, FAIRsharing (fairsharing.org) is a curated, informative and educational resource on data and metadata standards, inter-related to repositories and data policies. FAIRsharing guides consumers to discover, select and use these resources with confidence, and producers to make their resources more findable, more widely adopted and cited. In this context, the organizations are carrying out a joint project to increase the number and the clarity of journal and research funder policies that effectively incentivize data sharing, among other goals. The TOP Guidelines consist of eight specific standards that funder and publishers of scientific research can use to implement better research practices. The FAIRsharing registry exists to bring clarity and discoverability to existing data policies. By working together these two organizations will classify the recommendations these policies contain, to improve their definition, comparability and ultimately clarity of guidance to the users (authors and awardees). Initially, an exemplar set of policies, already in FAIRsharing, has been commonly curated and their compliance to the TOP Data Transparency standard assessed; a mechanism will be developed to display the level of compliance in FAIRsharing. Progressively, the work will expand to cover more policies; additional sorting and discovery features will be added to help users to find and compare policies.
Collaborator Contribution COS team has developed the TOP standard and calculated the score of these policies.
Impact A growing number of policies (from funders and journals: https://fairsharing.org/policies/) have a TOP Level Data Transparency score visible in their FAIRsharing record; for example here is the PLOS record in FAIRsharing https://fairsharing.org/FAIRsharing.t2exm showing a TOP Level Data Transparency: 2.

PI Contribution DataCite is a leading global non-profit organization, that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) with a focus on research data. DataCite's portfolio of services provide the means to create, find, cite, connect, and use research. Based in my group, FAIRsharing is a curated, informative and educational resource on data and metadata standards, inter-related to repositories and data policies. FAIRsharing guides consumers to discover, select and use these resources with confidence, and producers to make their resources more findable, more widely adopted and cited. Both organizations aim to advance and enable FAIR research data. This joint effort between DataCite and FAIRsharing is set to improve, in collaboration with several leading publishers, the criteria used by journal publishers for the recommendation of research data repositories for the benefit of the broader research community. Our contribution has been to bring together publishers (Cambridge University Press, eLife, Elsevier, EMBO Press, F1000, Oxford University Press's GigaScience, PLOS, Springer Nature's Scientific Data, Taylor and Francis, Hindawi, and Wiley) that were part of the FAIRsharing network. We have also lead the discussion that has resulted in the proposed criteria, and written the article and run a survey to collect community feedback.

Description ISA Commons 
Organisation ISA Commons
Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution We have helped many users, service providers and other developers to implement one or more components of the ISA software suite at their site to fit their data needs.
Collaborator Contribution They have helped us to refine the ISA software suite, filling gaps and tuning it for certain data types.
Impact The ISA Commons is a growing ecosystem of institute-based (e.g. USA NASA GeneLab Data Repository) and global repositories (e.g. EMBL-EBI MetaboLights), as well as data-driven journals (e.g. Springer Nature Scientific Data) that use the ISA formats, and/or are powered by one or more component of the ISA software suite. But also grass-root standards groups that leverage on the ISA data model and formats. The sustainability and maintenance of the ISA data model, formats, and tools, is guided by the ISA Working Group.
Start Year 2010
 
Title ISA Model and Serialization 
Description The original ISA-Tab specification was published as a Release Candidate document in 2008, documenting the initial work that forms the ISA framework, with a further update in 2009. Since then, we have done work on a new serialization in JSON, ISA-JSON, and abstracted out the data model from both the tabular and JSON formats. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2016 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact Serialisations implemented by several ISA components; the documentation also helps other users to implement ISA formats. 
URL http://isa-tools.org/2016/10/release-of-the-isa-specs/
 
Title ISA Python API 
Description The ISA API aims to provide software developers with a set of tools to help you easily and quickly build your own ISA objects, validate, and convert between serializations of ISA-formatted datasets and other formats/schemas (e.g. SRA schemas). The ISA API is published on PyPI as the isatools package. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2017 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact The vision for the ISA API is to provide a programming library that will become the core for all software tooling that supports the ISA framework. It enables the import of various data formats into an implementation of the ISA Abstract Model as Python objects, and export of ISA content from Python objects back to different serialization formats. 
URL http://isa-tools.org/2017/01/isa-api-milestone/
 
Title ISA software suite (built iteratively, component by component) 
Description The open source ISA framework and tools help to manage an increasingly diverse set of life science, environmental and biomedical experiments that employing one or a combination of technologies. Built around the 'Investigation' (the project context), 'Study' (a unit of research) and 'Assay' (analytical measurement) data model and serializations (tabular, JSON and RDF), the ISA framework helps you to provide rich description of the experimental metadata (i.e. sample characteristics, technology and measurement types, sample-to-data relationships) so that the resulting data and discoveries are reproducible and reusable. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2010 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact Growing number of users, as listed at http://isacommons.org; but also of co-developers have and are contributing to the collaborative enhancements. 
URL http://isa-tools.org/
 
Title ISA tooling for the metabolomics community 
Description A new set of ISA software tools have been developed out of the EU H2020 PhenoMeNal: Large-Scale Computing for Medical Metabolomics project (http://phenomenal-h2020.eu/home). The ISA team has been contributing to the project since 2015, and has been collaborating on the development of user-facing, cloud-based data management and processing infrastructure in the project. The PhenoMeNal software includes a new set of ISA-related Galaxy workflow tools, as well as native support for the ISA-Tab format in Galaxy. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2018 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact The tools work with the EBI MetaboLights database as well as with ISA-Tab studies uploaded directly into the Galaxy platform, and builds on the Python ISA-API. The Metabolights' use of ISA-API: Python-based REST service relying on the ISA-API https://github.com/EBI-Metabolights/MtblsWS-Py 
URL http://isa-tools.org/2018/03/isa-galaxy-developed-for-metabolomics/
 
Title ISA-API Python library 
Description Project name: ISA-API Project home page: http://github.com/ISA-tools/isa-api Operating system(s): Platform independent Programming language: Python 3 Other requirements: None License: CPAL-1.0 ISA-API, a Python library that supports the creation, editing, parsing, and validatiation of both ISA-Tab and ISA-JSON formats, using a common data model implemented as native Python objects. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2018 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact This provides users with a common interface and interoperable medium between the two ISA formats, as well as conversion to a set of other formats required for depositing data in public databases.
