Seven recommendations for implementation of FAIR practice - Draft for consultation

  • By Federico Drago

How to move from FAIR principles to FAIR practice? During the past year, the FAIR practice task force under the umbrella of the EOSC FAIR Working Group has been gathering its understanding of the current state of FAIR practices across diverse communities, and making recommendations aimed primarily at research funders and policymakers on how to ensure that “FAIR” provides maximum value in the European Open Science Cloud.

The result has been captured in a Draft "Seven Recommendations for Implementation of FAIR Practice", which we open for consultation with a webinar on 9 July and for which we request your input until August 31, at which point it will be prepared for formal delivery to the EOSC governance.

A first intermediate version of the EOSC glossary is available for comments:
 
EOSC glossary (June 2020)
 
While attempting to provide an initial definition of the EOSC, this version consists mainly of the basic concepts that are required to create the concept system and targets the infrastructure domain.
 
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as this first set of concepts will affect the entire development of the glossary.

Scoping the OA & OS Infrastructure Landscape in Europe to help sustain it

  • By Vanessa Proudman

Dear colleagues,

 

In recent years, a rich field of Open Access, Open Science/Scholarship resources and infrastructure, many essential, has organically developed in Europe. 
Many of these resources, as you may well know, are not necessarily sustainable - even though they underpin our evolving Open Access and Open Science landscape.

Towards a shared EOSC definition

  • By Dario Mangione

As it is known to all of us there is not yet a unique definition of EOSC. Someone believes that it is not correct to give such a unique definition since the meaning depends on the perspective EOSC is observed from. For example, you may observe it from the perspective of a researcher willing to exploit its functionality or you may observe it as a developer of its technological solutions.

The lack of such a shared definition, however, makes it difficult to present EOSC to new stakeholders and explain to them what is its unique value proposition.
