At the EXCITE Network we want our data to be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. It is the reason why we choose to use FAIR principles in data management (Wilkinson et al., 2016).
The FAIR principles imply:
By following the guidelines of FAIRification we can share our data openly and guarantee data governance internationally.
The EXCITE network aims to achieve this by: 1) utilizing open data standards and formats, 2) ensuring data produced under EXCITE will be described using controlled vocabularies and dedicated metadata models, and 3) distributing software developed in the EXCITE Network with open-sources licenses in publicly accessible repositories.
