Over the last few years, researchers, institutions and funding organizations have begun to embrace the value of ensuring that data is FAIR – findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable - by adhering to a set of guidelines called the FAIR principles. Among these benefits are:
- Enabling and enhancing reuse of data by humans and machines1
- Allowing broader access to publication, data, and other research materials and broader circulation of scientific knowledge2
- Greater return on investments in research data 1,2
- Increased opportunities for replication and expansion of scientific findings1
Given these benefits, it’s clear that the FAIR principles are set to cause a seismic shift in the way scientists collect, organize, and share their data in the coming years.
To help our users stay ahead of the curve, the MagLab is hosting a virtual user workshop focusing on the FAIR principles and featuring talks from FAIR data experts drawn from the various domains of research conducted at the MagLab. It will be a unique opportunity for MagLab users around the world to learn about the lab's efforts to implement the FAIR principles, provide feedback to guide the lab's implementation, and interface directly with FAIR data experts. We hope to see you there!
