FAIRsharing is a web-based, searchable portal of three interlinked registries, containing both in-house and crowdsourced manually curated descriptions of standards, databases and data policies, combined with an integrated view across all three types of resource. By registering your resource on FAIRsharing, you not only gain credit for your work, but you increase its visibility outside of your direct domain, so reducing the potential for unnecessary reinvention and proliferation of standards and databases.
From our first incarnation, BioSharing.org, which focussed on the life sciences, we are growing into FAIRsharing.org, to serve users across all disciplines.
All FAIRsharing records have a unique, persistent identifier, which can be used for citation purpose. These are as follows: Databases: biobdcore-123456, Standards: bsg-s123456, Policies: bsg-p123456, Collections and Recommendations: bsg-c123456
