Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable
The FAIR principles describe how research data and code should be organised so they can be more easily accessed, understood, exchanged and reused.
Here are some links to publications and sites which describe FAIR
Fairdata service components Fairdata Services are an interoperable set of tools for data storage, dataset metadata creation, dataset dissemination and distribution as well as digital preservation of selected research materials.
A permanent identifier like a
digital object identifier (DOI)is
a unique ID assigned to a dataset
to ensure that properly managed data does not get lost or misidentified.
Source – products (scripts) created to automate research steps
Open source tools
Codemetais a set of keywords used to describe software and way to structure them in machine readable way.
Here are some examples of research software registries:* bio.tools* Research Software Directory(check if your institution hosts one) * rOpenSci Project* Zenodo4OSS lesson episode about metadata and reg

When users click on this DOI, the DOI is resolved to an actual web address.Next to identifiers for data sets and for publications, it is also possible to create PIDs for people. Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier(ORCID) is an international system for the persistent identification of academic authors. It is a non-proprietary system, managed by an international consortium consisting of universities, national libraries, research institutes and data repositories. When your research results are associated with an ORCID, this information can be exchanged effectively across databases, across countries and across academic disciplines. You always retain full control over your own ORCID id. It is the de facto standard when submitting a research article or grant application, or depositing research data.
The open-access journal eLife will trial “a radical form of peer review”, in which it will publish every paper that it accepts, alongside all its reviews and the authors’ responses. The publication says that the process is potentially more efficient and collaborative. “Rather than the journal name being used as a proxy for the possible quality of an article, the journal becomes a venue for the critical and transparent evaluation of work,” wrote eLife’s executive director and editor-in-chief.
