Documentation and data assesment

The FAIR approach aims to make data easy to find, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

From the outset of a project, the national infrastructure advises and supports project sponsors on :

  • drawing up the data management plan (DMP), which describes how the data will be produced, documented, (re)used, managed and shared during and after the project,
  • structuring data documentation in the data collection, processing and enhancement tools,
  • the standardisation of data with a view to their interoperability with other tools. In this respect, France Cohortes follows the DDI-Lifecycle standard, which is widely used in the human and social sciences and is adapted to the wide variety of data collected within cohorts.

To enhance the value of cohort data, France Cohortes will shortly be publishing a catalogue of variables incorporating the international DDI-L standard.

Documentation and enhancement services are provided exclusively within the framework of the use of the services and tools of the France Cohortes IT platform.
