We need your help! The FAIR + Time paper is now open for public comments till 30 September!


FAIRsFAIRSSHOC, and EOSC Nordic are all supporting digital repositories in their journey to achieve TDR status. When sharing experiences, the project teams found out that two fundamental TDR concepts are not always easy to understand: preservation and Designated Community.

The draft working paper FAIR + Time: Preservation for a Designated Community seeks to:

  • Present key concepts and expand on them to specify the standards and assessments required for an interoperable ecosystem of FAIR data preserved for the long term in generalist and specialist FAIR-enabling trustworthy digital repositories (TDR) for a defined designated community of users.
  • Provide context and define these concepts for audiences familiar with research data and technical data management systems but with less direct experience of digital preservation and trustworthy digital repositories. This is intended to help clarify which organisations are potential candidates to receive CoreTrustSeal TDR status and identify and support the types of organisations that may not be candidates but play a vital role in the data ecosystem.
