The FAIRsharing Registry and Recommendations : Interlinking Standards, Databases and Data Policies

Publié le 30 octobre 2018, par Thérèse Hameau

« On 8 October 2018, the RDA BioSharing Registry : connecting data policies, standards & databases in life sciences Working Group was renamed to the FAIRSharing Registry : connecting data policies, standards & databases RDA Working Group. This change was approved by RDA Council following interaction with RDA Technical Advisory Board and the Working Group Co-chairs. The group name change reflects the broader constituency and potential user base of the working group recommendation, which goes beyond the biosciences community. A second, extended Request for Comments on the Working Group recommendation is open from 10 October – 10 December 2018 in order to ensure that the community at large, not just the Biosciences communities, has a chance to provide feedback and comments.


This document describes the outputs of a joint RDA-Force11 FAIRsharing WG[1].

  1. The FAIRsharing registry of interlinked records on standards (for identifying, reporting, citing data and metadata), databases (repositories and knowledge-bases) and data policies (from journals, publishers, funders and other organizations), ranging from the generic and multi-disciplinary, to those from specific domains.
  2. The FAIRsharing recommendations, to guide the users and producers of standards, databases and repositories on how to best select and describe these resources ; and to guide funders and publishers on how to recommend them in data policies.
