Welcome to the FAIR4RS WG

01 Apr 2021

First a very warm welcome to all our new members!

During the last few months we have seen an increase in the number of members of the FAIR4RS Working Group. It is fantastic to see such enthusiasm for this work! We now have 180+ members from 26 countries.


The value of this community is to provide early opportunities to influence policy and practice, including development of guidelines, briefing papers, workshops, and actively engaging in decision-making at a global level (via national, and regional representatives). We look forward to collaborating with you, with opportunities including conference participation, an open mailing list for thread discussions, document circulation to solicit feedback and calls for expertise to review documents. 

Please browse our existing resources to familiarise yourself with the working group and how to engage with us, including our list of communications channels for you to bookmark.


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our next open event is the steering committee meeting on April 12th 20:00 UTC to coordinate activities such as RDA VP17 and other presentations and paper writing.


With kind regards


Paula Andrea Martinez and Michelle Barker

on behalf of the FAIR4RS Steering Committee
