FAIRsFAIR will be showcased at AGU Fall 2020, one of the world's largest virtual scientific conferences, scheduled from 1-17 December.
Open data and data management policies that call for long-term access and preservation of data are becoming more and more commonplace in the global research community. In consequence, the need for trustworthy data repositories to preserve and disseminate data is growing. Researchers in the Global South need access to trustworthy digital repositories to make their data accessible, and relevant policymakers at the funder, publisher and organisational levels need to be aware of how their current policies support or hinder data FAIRness.
An important role for trustworthy repositories is the long-term stewardship of FAIR data objects, including curation activities to ensure data objects remain FAIR over time.
