The scheme shows the measurable items within the FAIR principles, the FAIRmetrics.

A design framework and exemplar metrics for FAIRness (2018)
The article shows how a groups of stakeholders established a FAIR Metrics group (http://fairmetrics.org) to define ways to measure FAIRness of data (and other digital objects) by making use of FAIRmetrics. The group states that:
- Metrics should address the multi-dimensionality of the FAIR principles, and encompass all types of digital objects.
- Universal metrics may be complemented by additional resource-specific metrics that reflect the expectations of particular communities.
Creating community specific FAIRmetrics
FAIRmetrics may involve specific challenges for research communities. A community may therefore define certain metrics according to standards or procedures that they (should) use.
