A FAIR Implementation Profile (FIP) is a list of declared technology choices, also referred to as FAIR Enabling Resources (FERs), that are intended to implement one or more of the FAIR Guiding Principles, made as a collective decision by the members of a particular community of practice.
The FIP Wizard 3.0 tool is based on the same technology as the familiar Data Stewardship Wizard. Essentially, we have replaced the Knowledge Model that guides the creation of a data stewardship plan, with a Knowledge Model based on the FIP Questionnaire that guides the user in the creation of a FIP. We have also added the capability for the FIP Wizard 3.0 to use (consume and produce) nanopublications, allowing the various elements of the FIP to be captured in this highly modular, referenceable, machine-readable format. Making use of nanopublications and the FIP Ontology, the FIP Wizard 3.0 captures FIPs that are themselves, to a very high degree, FAIR. This allows to query FIPs via the SPARQL Endpoint to compose a FAIR Convergence Matrix.
The FIP Questionnaire is based on the FIP Ontology.
The FIP Ontology defines 12 (13) FAIR Enabling Resources Types, see here.
A FAIR Enabling Resource (FER) is a digital object that provides functions needed to achieve some aspect of FAIRness addressessing explicitly one FAIR Sub-Principle.
Examples for FERs can be found here. A FER can be of more than one type.
A FAIR Supporting Resource (FSR) is any resource that supports the FAIRification or FAIR Orchestration of data and metadata. FSRs are identified with a GUPRI and have a machine-readable representation as a nanopublication which includes metadata about it. There are different types of FSRs. These types are still under discussion and will be extended as needed.
