FAIRsharing is a helpful tool – it offers a curated, searchable overview of data and metadata standards, linked to databases and data policies. Its central focus lies in life sciences, environmental sciences, biosciences and medical sciences. FAIRsharing supports you in making your own data better findable and thereby potentially more often cited. Researchers can also use FAIRsharing as a reference guide to identify the standards that exist for their data and discipline. This can be helpful during the preparation of a data management plan for a funding application, a funded project or when submitting a manuscript to a journal.
