Attempts have been made in the past, but they failed. Why?
FINDABILITY: (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and persistent identifier; data are described with rich metadata; metadata clearly and explicitly include the identifier of the data it describes; (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource
ACCESSIBILITY: (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized communications protocol; this protocol is open, free, and universally implementable, and allows for an authentication and authorization procedure, where necessary; metadata are accessible, even when the data are no longer available
INTEROPERABILITY: (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation; they use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles; they include qualified references to other (meta)data
REUSABILITY: (meta)data are richly described with a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes; they are released with a clear and accessible data usage license; they are associated with detailed provenance; they meet domain-relevant community standards
