ACME-FAIR: a guide for Research Performing Organisations

A capability Model and Guidance for FAIRenabling Organisations: “ACME-FAIR: a guide for RPOs”: The overall purpose of ACME-FAIR is to help those managing and delivering relevant professional services to self-assess how they are enabling researchers and their colleagues to do just that. Each part deals with one of the key issues that Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) face in establishing the capabilities to put the FAIR principles into practice. It is informed by the project’s engagement with community initiatives to ‘turn FAIR into Reality’, and by the report of the same name. It is recommended that universities, institutes and other RPO consider providing these capabilities as vital steps towards “FAIR-enabling practice”. Each of the 7 guides has a thematic introduction, an overview of the relevant capabilities, and a rubric for assessing the levels of maturity and community engagement for each capability.
