*2. *NEW* FAIRsharing RDA Recommendation*
*Responding to user feedback, we've finalised our draft of the
FAIRsharing Registry and Recommendations: Interlinking Standards,
Databases and Data Policies'. This output has been signed by 18 adopters
to date. The draft can be viewed on this googledoc
Please read the draft recommendation and add a comment if you wish to
become an adopter.*
3. DOIs for Database, Standard and Policy records
Through a collaboration with the British Library and the University of
Oxford’s Bodleian Library, we now have DOIs for Database, Standard and
Policy records in FAIRsharing.
Each record can now be reached using its DOI, e.g.
AGU Publications Data Policy

We will be adding DOIs for our collection and recommendation records in
the near future.
4. The FAIRsharing Embeddable Widget
We continue to update the widget and now have a version 1.0 available
for implementation. *The widget can be used to represent a FAIRsharing
collection or recommendation as either an interactive table or network
graph. *We are working with a number of journal publishers to install
the widget on their webpages to represent their data policies in an
interactive, responsive table and graph.
Many thanksto Scott and the GigaScience team for rolling out the widget
on their pages so quickly. It can be viewed in-situhere
