This report presents a study for a flexible framework to create, document and publish semantic mappings and cross-walks linking different semantic artefacts within a particular scientific community and across scientific domains. These mappings and cross-walks should be FAIR, as proposed in the FAIR Semantics recommendations. The study draws on the broad expertise of the authors and 25 interviews conducted with community experts. A description for a proposed follow-up implementation project is part of the report.
