The next FASEB DataWorks! Salon on June 7 will focus on two guiding principles for data sharing and reuse—and how researchers can incorporate them into their research activities. 

Published in 2016, the FAIR guiding principles for data management and stewardship established four key tenets of data sharing: that data should be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. During the June 7 Salon, two of the authors of these principles, Maryann Martone, PhD, and Tim Clark, PhD, will discuss how researchers can ensure data are FAIR. 

More recently, the CARE principles established parameters for engaging with indigenous communities to ensure collective benefit, authority to control, responsibility, and ethics in data governance. Stephanie Russo Carroll, DrPH, MPH, lead author of the CARE principles, will also join the June 7 salon to discuss how researchers can incorporate these considerations into their work. The session will be moderated by Ishwar Chandramouliswaran, PhD, Deputy Director of the Office of Data Science and Emerging Technologies within the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
