FAIR Metrics Group

How FAIR is your data ?

The FAIR Metrics Group is collaborating with a broad set of stakeholders to define metrics enabling both qualitative and quantitative assessment of the degree to which online resources comply with the 15 Principles of FAIR Data  as they were originally stated in the “The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship“.

In the first 2-day face to face meeting (3-4 June), this group has set a framework for metrics, and worked on concrete metrics for the “F” principles. The team convenes regularly and aims to release a strawman framework for metrics evaluation early August 2017.

Next meeting
