FAIRsharing is much more than a repository registry. However, it also allows to search for suitable repositories based on subject, method, and more.
„Using community participation, the FAIRsharing team precisely curates information on standards employed for the identification, citation and reporting of data and metadata, via four standards subtypes. First, minimum reporting guidelines—also known as guiding principles or checklists—outline the necessary and sufficient information vital for contextualizing and understanding a digital object. Second, terminology artifacts or ‘semantics’, ranging from dictionaries to ontologies, provide definitions and unambiguous identification for concepts and objects. Third, models and formats define the structure and relationship of information for a conceptual model and include transmission formats to facilitate the exchange of data between different systems. And lastly, identifier schemata are formal systems for resources and other digital objects that allow their unique and unambiguous identification. FAIRsharing monitors the evolution of these standards, their implementation in databases and repositories, and recommendation by journal and funder data policies“
