In this guest blog post, INCF Director of Science and Training Mathew Abrams describes how the INCF makes use of FAIRsharing as part of the formal procedure it has in place for the evaluation and endorsement of community standards.
FAIRsharing presented at NBN 2022 last week, and here are our Allyson’s impressions of the day.

This Programme creates a collaborative environment where domain experts are selected to oversee certain areas within the FAIRsharing registry in return for a number of professional benefits. Our community curators promote the standards and databases most […]

Update of FAIRsharing data processes
FAIRsharing has a rich array of metadata describing human- and machine-readable data access, data curation, and data release in two different sections within FAIRsharing records (“Data Processes” and “Access Points”). We needed to reconcile these sections so users can have a clearer picture of the ways in which each resources can be accessed. The new […]
