FAIR principles

The Three-point FAIRification Framework
To provide practical “how to” guidance to stakeholders seeking create and maintain FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data.
Since its conception in early 2018, the GO FAIR community has been working towards implementation of the FAIR Guiding Principles. This collective effort has resulted in a three-point framework that formulates the essential steps towards the end goal, a global Internet of FAIR Data and Services where data are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) for both humans and machines. The Three-point FAIRification Framework provides practical “how to” guidance to stakeholders seeking to go FAIR. Moreover, by following this framework, stakeholders can be assured that their efforts toward FAIRification will be coordinated with the efforts of other stakeholders in the GO FAIR community. The three-point framework maximizes reuse of existing resources, maximizes interoperability, and accelerates convergence on standards and technologies supporting FAIR data and services. The framework helps a broad spectrum of stakeholders to see what “going FAIR” means to them in practice, and to immerse themselves in the emerging FAIR landscape.
