Researcher KnowHow: FAIR data principles


The FAIR principles are a useful framework for thinking about sharing data in a way that will enable maximum use and reuse. They provide guidance for data producers and publishers to enhance the reusability of research data.

Working towards making your data FAIR is beneficial to you as a researcher because it achieves the maximum impact for your research, increases visibility and possible citations, can improve reproducibility and reliability and can attract new and different partnerships. Your research data can also enable new research questions to be answered.

FAIR relates to both your research data and metadata. You can work towards being FAIR without having to make your research data open if it is not appropriate. Adopting FAIR data principles helps make open data more accessible and reusable.
