Team Argon FAIR Research

FAIR Research

Best practices, tools and tips for integrating FAIR data principles into your daily work.

There is no point in wasting good thoughts on bad data.

Do you want your research to contribute to knowledge?
Do you want your work to be useful by others?
Do you want your work today to be understood by yourself a year from now?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you should want to organize your work so that its products are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable: in other words, FAIR.
