FAIR-Aware is an online tool which helps researchers and data managers assess how much they know about the requirements for making datasets findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) before uploading them into a data repository.


The tool comprises 10 carefully designed questions, each generously supplied with additional information and practical tips which extend users' understanding of the FAIR principles as they work through the questionnaire with a target dataset in mind.

FAIR-Aware has been developed by FAIRsFAIR partners DANS, DCC, UniHB and we’ve done our best to make using it as simple and time-efficient as possible. We’re looking to make further improvements so you’ll notice that some of the questions are directed at users. All feedback received will be taken on board and incorporated into a final version. An interim report was published in September detailing what we’ve learned from this initial phase and explaining the upgrades we have in mind.
