Hi all! I'm Esther and I work as a Data Steward at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. I'm responsible for supporting the researchers there with their data/code management and making it more FAIR, so I'm mainly here to learn about case studies I could reuse and apply to my own work. I also read up quite a bit on the topic so hopefully I have something useful to contribute to the group as well. Looking forward to having a deadline to dive in deeper into the topic and working together with you on this! :)
Hi everyone! I'm a software skills person at the Australian Research Data Commons. I care about helping researchers get credit for the software they write, and I also care about trustworthy research. I'm in this subgroup because I think there are more similarities between research objects than differences when it comes to the FAIR principles. It helps (or maybe doesn't help) that the FAIR principles are a bit vague and always need a lot of explanation and unpacking before they make sense.
Question: Is it the idea that we add the resources directly to the Zotero library? Because I tried to see if I could do this but I think I would require access.
Hi Everyone! I am a research computing support staff for the campus HPC cluster. I work with researchers in developing and deploying tools. Time to time I write workflows, scripts, and programs for the researchers. I like the idea of applying FAIR principles to software. Looking forward to work with you!
Hi All, I'm Tom Honeyman, I have been working for the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) for the last couple of years, and have just started in the role of "Software Program Manager" at the ARDC. The ultimate aim for this position is to push for Research Software as a first class research output in an Australian context through a program of work that I'm setting up. In this role I'll be drafting an agenda for research software for the ARDC, helping to set up a local chapter of the SSI (...AuSSI, hopefully), and otherwise trying to align with international efforts in this space. Looking forward to working with you all.
Hello everyone, welcome to this Gitter channel. Great to see you all here and thank you for the introductions. My name is Mateusz Kuzak, I'm a Community Manager at the Netherlands eScience Center and I will be leading subgroup.

Hi! My name is Maggie Hellström, and I work at the ICOS Carbon Portal (the data center & repository of a European research infrastructure called Integrated Carbon Observation System) as a research data manager. My main RDM interests are Open Science & how to achieve FAIR data (and other research resources!). My interest in FAIR4RS was triggered by two things: 1) I'm coordinating an RDA Sweden mini-project looking at researcher attitudes towards Open Software in Sweden and the Nordic countries, and the topics covered by the 4 Task Forces are very much aligned with the issues that we're trying to cover; and 2) my organisation ICOS has made a firm commitment to use Open Software, and we run our own GitHub repo. However, we're not very good at using persistent identifiers for our code, which is causing problems both for capturing provenance metadata for our data objects, and for documenting and curation of our Jupyter Hub-based data analysis environments. So I want to learn more about what others are doing about this!
thank you for helping us collecting the references, I send the list of next steps for the group to our making lists.
You can help us by picking a task and finding, here on Gitter someone to work on this. @Michelle1Barker_twitter and I will be here to answer your questions.
Hi folks, I'm going to focus on the paper on FAIR training - anyone want to work with me on it?
I am going to work on "Finding examples of other types of research objects". I added some additional subheaders to represent some of the "types" of things that arent covered by 'workflows', 'notebooks', or 'training materials'.
Hi @Michelle1Barker_twitter , are you still looking for someone to help with the FAIR training paper?
@raar1 yes, I'll be reading it late next week and happy to swap notes with you then?
@Michelle1Barker_twitter perfect, I'll work on the FAIR training paper for now then
