Enabling FAIR Data Project
This wikipage summarizes all relevant information for OSGeo concerning the Enabling FAIR Data project
The Enabling FAIR Data Project
* Earth and Space science publications have supporting data and derived products in the form of citations, with deposited digital objects in open access repositories and with metadata that supports discovery, interlinking, and interoperability. * Documentation (metadata) included with submitted datasets and derived products to ensure the data are findable, accessible, interoperable (across repositories and publishers), and reusable – supporting the FAIR principles. * Repositories support data citation through the use of persistent identifiers, landing pages, and machine-readable metadata. * Leading publishers and repositories implement the recommendations and guidelines. * Researchers have a similar experience when submitting their paper and supporting data (and software/services) no matter the journal.
* The OSGeo board signed the Enabling FAIR Data commitment statement in October 2018 as repository, society and research infrastructure.
* The gvSig project is also a signatory-
OSGeo announcement about becoming a signatory [DRAFT]
The commitment statement of the Enabling FAIR Data project was signed OSGeo, the open source geospatial foundation in October 2018. María Arias de Reyna, current President of OSGeo signed the statement on behalf of the board of OSGeo and committed OSGeo in its roles as a society, research infrastructure and data repository to the advancement of the FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) in science. The FAIR principles are part of the greater paradigm shift towards open science, which includes the concepts of open source software, open access and open data, among others.
