A deeper dive into repository assessment: CoreTrustSeal+FAIRenabling Capability-Maturity

The FAIRsFAIR project has mapped the CoreTrustSeal requirements to the FAIR principles, FAIRsFAIR metrics and RDA FAIR Data Indicators and created CoreTrustSeal+FAIR Capability-Maturity approach to support repository assessment against the mapped concepts. The approach is currently an informal assessment, which repositories could use to assess their status as a trusted digital repository and their FAIRenabling practices. Information specialist Henri Ala-Lahti describes how FSD tested the capability-maturity approach.

The FSD blog discusses recent developments in social science research and data policy as well as FSD services and projects.
