How do you help a PhD student find a repository for FAIR sharing?

Ask the right questions

To find the right repository for his project, he should ask himself the following questions:

  • Do I know how to find a relevant repository for my results?
  • Do I know the main criteria for selecting a repository or data warehouse?
  • Do I know the certificates and standards for repositories?

Validate the competencies

To validate his skills, you can use validation exercises.

For example you can ask him to find two repositories that would be suitable for his project.
