The road to FAIR
FAIR is a journey, not a destination. The road to FAIR joins the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) community in their journey to produce findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable data and publication. In other words, this blog aims at promoting discussions about FAIR principles that encompass their technical and organizational aspects. One of the basic purposes of the blog is to make the acronym FAIR more accessible to the SSH community by contemplating the specificities of the domain.
We participate in this journey by providing a space of communication of different aspects and moments of this quest organized around different stations where you can stop.
In What you need to know we gather everything related to theoretical and technical aspects of the FAIR principles. It is a place to start if you are beginning FAIRification. It is also a place to share what you have learned so far. In Traveling companions you find where the FAIR principles implementation is already a work in progress and all the potential partners. You can find which organizations, institutions, and initiatives have already produced and combined efforts towards FAIRification. Traveling stories is the place to find and to share experiences of FAIR implementation, models, standards, and good practices. What you can take with you presents the resources you can take with you during your journey: guides, softwares, tools, methods, etc. Finally, in News you will find useful information, announcements, and brief accounts of events about FAIR.
The FAIR principles have become unmissable. In this journey we, the SSH community, can take them in our hands and adapt them to our needs.
