    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;This report investigates the meaning and (potential) impact&lt;br&gt; of the FAIR data principles in practice. These principles&lt;br&gt; were established by a group of diverse stakeholders&lt;br&gt; engaging via a working group in FORCE11. They are&lt;br&gt; referenced in many policy documents and in developments&lt;br&gt; of open science, for example, the European Open Science&lt;br&gt; Cloud.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This report explored FAIR with stakeholders in the&lt;br&gt; UK academic research community. Its aims were to&lt;br&gt; understand how using or being inspired by these principles&lt;br&gt; improves the findability, accessibility, interoperability and&lt;br&gt; reuse of research data, including consideration of&lt;br&gt; disciplinary differences.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Jisc established a group of research data experts and Jisc&lt;br&gt; staff who provided expertise and helped to validate&lt;br&gt; findings. Interviews and focus groups were conducted,&lt;br&gt; primarily with researchers, but also involving input from&lt;br&gt; research support professionals, publishers and funders.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;br&gt; An assessment of the use of FAIR principles in institutional&lt;br&gt; research data management (RDM) guidance was also&lt;br&gt; carried out. Data collected from these activities was&lt;br&gt; synthesised and structured using a PEST framework -&lt;br&gt; grouped into factors relating to Political, Economic, Social&lt;br&gt; and Technical aspects.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Explicit use of FAIR was seen to be limited, in many cases,&lt;br&gt; to discussion at a fairly conceptual level amongst those&lt;br&gt; most heavily involved in best practice of data management.&lt;br&gt; Even where FAIR was fairly well established as a term and&lt;br&gt; a concept, it tended to largely reflect existing practice.&lt;br&gt; Arguably this was without significantly influencing many&lt;br&gt; practical changes for those at the &amp;ldquo;leading edge&amp;rdquo; of data&lt;br&gt; management, although it did provide a new and effective&lt;br&gt; common way of communicating best practice.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;However, in exploring the underlying practices of research,&lt;br&gt; demonstrating findability, accessibility, interoperability&lt;br&gt; and reusability, there was considerable evidence that&lt;br&gt; good practice existed in all of these elements. In many&lt;br&gt; cases this was both well established (over many years)&lt;br&gt; and continually improving.&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
