Learn about the metadata indicators that summarise the key points of each record
FAIRsharing metadata indicators, visible at the top of each record, provide an “at-a-glance” overview of the key metadata associated with a record.
A record status indicator.
This icon is present when licence(s) are provided.
This icon shows that a developer of that resource has claimed the record.
The maintainer icon indicates that the record has at least one maintainer. Maintainers not only help keep resources discoverable by the research community, but also help us to provide a complete and up-to-date view of scientific standards, policies and databases for researchers, funders and publishers. Please also see our documentation for claiming a record for a resource you develop.
From left to right, these relationship icons are present when at least one standard, database or data policy is linked to this record.
This trio of relationship icons tells you if at least one of that relationship type is present within the record. FAIRsharing has the ability to store and display the relationships between resources, a key feature in understanding the landscape of standards, databases and policies around a particular resource. This information places a resource in context – which standards does a database implement, how is it interoperable with other resources?
If a record has information on programmatic access, this icon will be displayed.
If the resource is directly related to at least one identifier schema, this icon will be displayed.
This icon is visible on records where at least one community badge or certification is provided.
The certification / community badge icon shows whether the record has at least one certificate or community badge. Please note that this is self-reported information that should be confirmed with the certification agency or community described.
