Undertaking this assessment helped raise my awareness and my understanding of the FAIR data Principles.

FAIR-Aware is an online tool developed by the FAIRsFAIR project. It helps to assess your current level of awareness on making your datasets findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) before uploading them in a data repository. By guiding you through the assessment process, the tool will help you to better understand the FAIR Principles and how making data FAIR can increase the potential value and impact of your data.

FAIR-Aware is not meant to give you a score for the FAIRness of a specific dataset. You should, however, have a target dataset in mind to be able to answer the questions and complete the assessment.

The tool consists of 19 questions with related guidance and examples (click on the ‘i’ icon to see the guidance). The majority of the questions will help you assess your current levels of awareness about what actions are needed to make data FAIR. There are also a few questions about the users of the tool to improve FAIR-Aware and make it as user-friendly as possible. You will need approximately 30 minutes to complete the assessment.
