Dear members of the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group,
As we are getting nearer to the next online meeting on 18 June 2019, we’d
like to remind the members of the group that contributions to the
collaborative document at  are open until the 31st of May 2019.
Following requests from the community, we have now added a section in the
document under the heading “Choices Beyond FAIR”  where you can propose
indicators and maturity levels for aspects that are not explicitly included
in the FAIR principles, the category that we referred to in the first
meeting as the X-category or X-strand.
An initial analysis of the contributions so far indicates that the areas
Findable and Accessible get a good number of indicators, but that there are
much less indicators for the areas Interoperable and Reusable. We therefore
encourage the members to specifically propose indicators for those areas,
We are looking forward to your further contributions and to welcoming many
of you at the next online meeting on 18 June 2019, at 0700UTC and 1500UTC.
