Description FAIRsharing is an informative and educational resource that describes and interlinks community-driven standards (such as minimum reporting guidelines, terminology artifacts, models/formats and identifier schemas), databases (both knowledgebases and repositories), and data policies. FAIRsharing monitors their evolution, tracking which standards are implemented in which databases, and which resources are recommended by journal and funder data policies. FAIRsharing mission is to: provide guidance to consumers, so accelerating the discovery, selection and use of relevant data and metadata standards, databases, and data policies with confidence; and help producers to increase the visibility of their resource outside of their immediate discipline, increasing the likelihood of their reuse, adoption and citation.
FAIRsharing already has a number of international users, as well as the number of journals, libraries and research data management groups recommending FAIRsharing to their authors, users and researchers, and number of members joining the FAIRsharing Working Group (WG) under the Research Data Alliance (RDA).
As part of this award, we work to map and align (where appropriate) database/repository metadata fields between FAIRsharing and the NBDC Integbio catalogue, towards a fully synchronised content transfer workflow to ensure database/repository information is accurate and identical across the two sites. Ultimately, these links will better serve the stakeholder community world-wide.
Exploitation Route As results of this award, we will be able to provide the community with unfettered access to the FAIRsharing registry via our API or the Integbio catalogue and the Life Science Database Cross Search (https://biosciencedbc.jp/dbsearch/ - Japanese only). We are also working with Integbio to provide SPARQL and API access to their data to FAIRsharing, and we have started to consider FAIR assessment metrics and how we can develop and display these on our respective websites. Combine these functionalities will better serve the stakeholder community world-wide, providing richer, interlinked and machine-readable content for the users. This will allow, for example, a tool to create DMP plans can better access and surface a list of relevant databases (and related standards) to the users for them to select from.

Title FAIRassist, the FAIRsharing educational component 
Description FAIRassist is the new educational component of the well established FAIRsharing resource, and aims to help users to discover resources to measure and improve FAIRness. FAIRassist implements a phased rollout of its content, working with and for the community. The initial step is to list and describe existing resources for the assessment and/or evaluation of digital objects against the FAIR principles, which are aspirational. The focus is on manual questionnaires, checklists and automated tests that help users understand how to achieve a state of "FAIRness", and how this can be measured and improved.

Title FAIRsharing 
Description FAIRsharing is a FAIR-supporting resource that provides an informative and educational registry on data standards, databases, repositories and policy, alongside search and visualization tools and services that interoperate with other FAIR-enabling resources. FAIRsharing guides consumers to discover, select and use standards, databases, repositories and policy with confidence, and producers to make their resources more discoverable, more widely adopted and cited. Each record in FAIRsharing is curated in collaboration with the maintainers of the resource themselves, ensuring that the metadata in the FAIRsharing registry is accurate and timely. Every record is manually reviewed at least once a year. Records can be collated into Collections, based on a project, society or organisation, or Recommendations, where they are collated around a policy, such as a journal or funder data policy. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data

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

PI Contribution Scholarly publishers are working together to maximize efficiency during COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that key work related to COVID-19 is reviewed and published as quickly and openly as possible. The Initiative, which grew from a need to improve efficiency of peer review and publishing of crucial COVID-19 research, began in April 2020 and now involves over 20 publishers, industry experts, and scholarly communication organizations, supporting over 1,800 rapid reviewers across relevant fields. FAIRsharing is part of this initiative, because making data available is not enough, sharing it via the appropriate repositories -that also implement the relevant data and metadata standards- is essential.
Collaborator Contribution The COVID Rapid Review Initiative members will register their data policy in FAIRsharing; these data policies will be grouped and visible under a dedicated FAIRsharing Collection. The use of repositories and community standards are at the core of FAIR, the globally adopted Principles advocating datasets and other research outputs are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

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.
