Enabling FAIR Data Project Nature Commentary: Make Scientific Data FAIR
We would like to direct you to Nature Commentary published on 5 June 2019 by the Enabling FAIR Data Steering Committee as a result of the work of the project.
– Make Scientific Data FAIR (Nature 570, 27–29; doi: 10.1038/d41586-019-01720-7)
The main point of the article is to encourage the broad research community to work towards open and FAIR data and put in place the policies, guidelines, incentives, and funding necessary to support the needed culture and systemic change around how we handle our scientific data.
In the same Nature publication is a companion piece on credit for data that might also be of interest:
