• 3.1. FAIR principles

    The increasing availability of online resources means that data need to be created with a long-term perspective in mind. Providing other researchers with access to your data facilitates knowledge discovery and improves research transparency.

    By the end of this module, you will be able to:

    • Identify key elements that help make research data discoverable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.
    • Understand how these key elements are used in different research disciplines and different research workflows.
    • Distinguish between FAIR data and open data.
