This chapter is dedicated to the services, tools, and indicators necessary for the assessment or the evaluation of data against the FAIR Principles, which are aspirational.

This is a nascent area and there are a number of manual questionnaires, checklists as well as automated tests, many listed here, which help users understand how to achieve a state of FAIRness, and how this can be measured and improved.

Browse existing recipes, and bear in mind that this is a ‘live resource’, and recipes are added and improved, iteratively, in an open manner.
