This spreadsheet presents the list of the policy elements assessed in the FAIR data policy checklist and allows policy makers to characterise their policies against each using standard set of options. By creating structured descriptions, depositing them with a repository, and making them visible through registry services, the community can support a more efficient and comparable means of assessing the policy landscape over time such as that envisaged by the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (https://www.eosc.eu/sria). FAIRsFAIR has developed guidance to help policy makers to work through the process (Creating and Sharing Structured Policy Descriptions - a step by step guide (1.0). Zenodo. https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6281105).
