Now we’ve talked about the value of #ResearchData and #RDM, let’s get into the #FAIRData principles! These state that research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
Let’s start with #Findability! We can only use #ResearchData if we know how to look for them. This means that data (& metadata) not only need to be registered in a searchable database, but also to be indentified in a way that is clear, consistent and unique.
