Applying open/the Fair Principles to archaeology

Square

The FAIR Data Principles are a set of guiding principles in order to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (Wilkinson et al., 2016). These principles provide practical guidance for scientific data management and stewardship and are relevant to all stakeholders in the current digital ecosystem. They directly address data producers and data publishers to promote maximum use of research data [1]. Open Data and Linked Open Data (Tim Berners-Lee, 2006) are complementary concepts which originated from the development of the semantic web whereby resources are uniquely and unambiguously referenced, can be looked up by humans and machines, are useful and include links to other resources. Also, the resources are available for reuse under an Open Licence [2].

ARIADNEplus, along with other projects and initiatives, are promoting these principles for adoption worldwide.
