FAIR-IMPACT Project Launches Survey to Collect Insights on Mapping Practices

The FAIR-IMPACT project, dedicated to promoting FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) principles in research data management, has recently launched a survey aimed at gathering insights into mapping practices. With the project's focus on "Semantic Artefact Mappings and Crosswalks," the survey seeks input from individuals involved in creating, consuming, storing, or sharing mappings.

What do we mean by Mapping? By mapping, we mean the processes that involve establishing connections or relationships between different elements, including identifying similarities, correspondences, and alignments. The survey aims to collect information on various aspects of mapping, including creation, documentation, encoding, publishing, and reuse.

Participants in the survey play a crucial role in shaping the future of mapping methodologies. By sharing their experiences, practices, and tools used in mapping activities, they contribute to advancing understanding and improving mapping practices within the research community.

The survey, which takes approximately 25 minutes to complete, offers participants the opportunity to make a significant impact on the field. Your insights will help inform future developments and innovations in mapping practices, ultimately benefiting the broader research data management landscape.

To participate in the survey and contribute to the advancement of mapping methodologies, individuals are encouraged to visit the FAIR-IMPACT project website and complete the survey questionnaire. Their valuable input will help drive progress towards more effective and efficient mapping processes in research data management.
