  • Problem addressed

    FAIR-IMPACT aims to realise a FAIR EOSC using proven solutions, tools and methods developed during the FAIRsFAIR and other initiatives. One of the goals of the project is to enable the ‘FAIRification’ of different research objects such as datasets, software and semantic artefacts originating from a large range of scientific disciplines. This includes the provision and extension of FAIR assessment metrics and associated tools and their adoption to the needs and requirements of a variety of research communities. In particular FAIRsFAIR data object assessment metrics as well as the F-UJI tool are intended to become more disciplinary-context aware and to include more discipline-specific tests in cooperation with FAIR-IMPACT use case partners, domain data repositories, research infrastructures and e-infrastructures.

    Problem addressed: This deliverable provides the first set of discipline specific tests and metrics developed in cooperation with FAIR-IMPACT Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) use case partners. We present an analysis of SSH community FAIR-aligned habits and practices carried out using available literature and whitepapers, data collected using standard interfaces provided by the community, as well as FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs) from a number of SSH data repositories. Based on this analysis we identified an appropriate SSH sub-community, the social sciences, for which we defined a set of discipline specific metrics and tests derived from the FAIRsFAIR data assessment metrics which are also presented in this deliverable.
