In this workshop by the GO FAIR Implementation Network on Discovery, we will be looking at data discovery across disciplines, with a particular focus on interfaces and other user-facing services.

Workshop abstract

Research data are among the fastest growing openly accessible scientific outputs on the web. While we have made great strides when it comes to accessibility of scientific data, discoverability is seriously lacking. As a result, up to 85% of research data are not reused (Peters et al. 2016). Discoverability is therefore one of the key challenges for FAIR data: in many ways, we cannot cash the cheques written by this movement, if we do not increase the visibility of research outputs.
In this workshop by the GO FAIR Implementation Network on Discovery, we will be looking at data discovery across disciplines, with a particular focus on interfaces and other user-facing services. Specifically, we will explore the following topics:

target audience

All stakeholders of findable and discoverable research data: those interested in finding and reusing data (researchers, citizen scientists, practitioners etc.), those wanting to make their data findable (research Infrastructures and research communities, repository managers, publishers and content providers, research administrators etc.) and those looking to facilitate the process (libraries, service providers and innovators etc.).

Learning outcomes

Agenda

The workshop will be interactive with members of the Discovery IN presenting the preliminary results of a stocktaking of use cases, tools, and standards, providing ample time for discussion with and input from the audience.
