FAIR check

In accordance to the FAIR principles both data and analysis should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reproducible.

We provide input on how to make your research reproducible. One of the services we provide to achieve this is the FAIR check.

Prior to publication you can provide us with your draft and we will check the following items;

  • Data availability (F and A)
  • Code availability (F and A)
  • Interoperability (I)
  • Reproducibility (R)

Based on our assessment we can provide your draft with a FAIR rating which can be included in the cover letter and final publication.

If one of the components fails or can be improved you can work together with the UBEC to remedy this and increase your chances of publication.
