Good data are FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable
 
What makes data good?
  1. It has to be readable and well enough documented for others (and a future you) to understand.
  2. Data has to be findable to keep it from being lost. Information scientists have started to call such data FAIR — Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable.
