This specification (v0.4) contains 17 core metrics proposed by FAIRsFAIR to evaluate the FAIRness of research data objects in Trustworthy Digital Repositories (TDRs). Two new metrics representing the FAIR principle A1 have been added into the specification. Metric descriptions (e.g., related resources, comments) were refined based on feedback received from external users and pilot repositories.

We are seeking wide feedback on the object metrics which will inform discussions and further work within FAIRsFAIR as well as collaborations with other relevant projects. Comments and suggestions can be added until 31.12.2020 here.
