FAIR data self-assessment tool

Share
Share

The ANDS-Nectar-RDS FAIR data self-assessment tool enables you to assess the 'FAIRness' of a dataset and determine how to enhance its FAIRness (where applicable).

This self-assessment tool has been designed predominantly for data librarians and IT staff, but could be used by software engineers developing FAIR data tools and services, and researchers provided they have assistance from research support staff.

You will be asked questions related to the principles underpinning Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Once you have answered all the questions in each section you will be given a ‘green bar’ rating based on your answers in that section, and when all sections are completed, an overall 'FAIRness' rating is provided.
