About this project

The biomedical and informatics communities have largely endorsed the spirit and basic components of the FAIR Data Principles. Biomedical data producers, including CTSA hubs, need actionable best-practice guidance on how to make their data discoverable and reusable, and bring the practical benefits of data sharing to researcher’s own research projects, as well as the research community as a whole.

CTSA hubs produce many valuable datasets which can be shared across the broader research community. A significant gap exists between the data providers and the data discovery portals where researchers look for relevant datasets. Data providers typically lack sufficient guides to expose their dataset metadata to these data portals. This project is targeted to streamline and minimize the efforts from data providers while maximizing the data discoverability.
