The FAIR Principles (in HELIPORT)
HELIPORT follows the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) principles definition which is referenced from:
NoteWilkinson, M. D. et al. The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship. Sci. Data 3:160018 doi: 10.1038/sdata.2016.18 (2016).
To be Findable
- F1. (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and persistent identifier
- Each project record can be represented with a Persistant Identifier (PID) with the HZDR specific prefix 20.500.12865.
- F2. data are described with rich metadata (defined by R1 below)
- HELIPORT uses Handles and metadata schemes with minimum and recommended terms.
- F3. metadata clearly and explicitly include the identifier of the data it
- The Handle is a mandatory field of each project.
- F4. (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource
- Metatadata of each project is indexed and searchable.
To be Accessible
- A1. (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized
- Metadata can be harvested through our private REST interface as well as a public REST interface in a future release.
- A1.1 the protocol is open, free, and universally implementable
- The protocols specified below A1 are publicly available, free and universally implementable.
- A1.2 the protocol allows for an authentication and authorization
procedure, where necessary
- A part of the metadata is always accessible without any authentication or authorization procedure.
- A2. A small part of the metadata is accessible, even when a project is no longer available
- Metadata will be available, even if the files are no longer available in HELIPORT.
To be Interoperable
- I1. (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation.
- I2. (meta)data use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles
- Some metadata terms refer to external, publicly available vocabularies, e.g. OpenDefinition for licenses.
- I3. (meta)data include qualified references to other (meta)data
- Each external project metadata term is referenced by a resolvable URL.
To be Reusable
- R1. meta(data) are richly described with a plurality of accurate and
- Each project must contain the mandatory terms of the DataCite Metadata Scheme and can additionally include additional DataCite fields or custom additions.
- R1.1. (meta)data are released with a clear and accessible data usage
- Data which is downloaded by a user is subject to the specified license in the metadata.
- R1.2. (meta)data are associated with detailed provenance
- Every project and metadata in HELIPORT is associated to a registered HELIPORT user.
- In the project's metadata the original authors can be specified.
- R1.3. (meta)data meet domain-relevant community standards
- HELIPORT is a multi-domain institutional project guidance system. The Metadata Scheme is a broadly applicable and includes cross-domain metadata standards.
