Theme

Collaborating to make traumatic stress research data “FAIR”

Theme leader: Nancy Kassam-Adams


 

The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data stewardship state that data should be Findable, Accessible, Inter-operable, and Re-usable (FAIR). These principles are part of the growing movement toward more open and transparent science.  Making traumatic stress research data more FAIR can promote better science, enhance understanding of trauma impact and recovery, and ultimately benefit trauma-exposed individuals and communities around the world.  But to date most traumatic stress studies have not been designed with data preservation, sharing, or re-use in mind. See also Kassam-Adams & Olff (2020). Projects in this theme will create resources that can facilitate FAIR data across the field of traumatic stress studies.

 We need to hear from you! 

SURVEY: If you are a traumatic stress researcher at any career stage (including trainees) we invite you to share your opinions and experiences by participating in this survey:  International Survey on Data Sharing and Re-use in Traumatic Stress Research

 
PROJECTS

Projects in the FAIR Data theme span the research data lifecycle.  Our projects are making it easier to FIND and RE-USE traumatic stress data resources, creating ACCESSIBLE data archives focused on traumatic stress research, and building tools to help traumatic stress researchers implement FAIR data practices.
