What is DSW?¶
Data Stewardship Wizard is a joint ELIXIR CZ and ELIXIR NL project bringing a simple but powerful solution for researchers to help them understand what is needed for good, FAIR-oriented Data Stewardship, to find ELIXIR experts to help out, and to build their own Data Management Plans. The DS Wizard can also function as a check list for data management professionals, like the checklists used by pilots before each flight.
The main driver for the DSW is now to offer a convenient helpful tool for data stewards and researchers. Given a limited funding, we focus on this mission now. Howevever, from a long-term perspective, the richness of knowledge contained in the Wizard definitively calls for being FAIR. On this page we track the progress of compliance with the FAIR principles.
