Wilkinson et al. claimed in previous work that Adherence of a dataset to the FAIR Guiding Principles enables its automated discovery. We present here a formalization of that claim, stating that all things of class “adherence to the FAIR Guiding principles” that are in the context of a thing of class “data set” can generally have a relation of type “enables” to a thing of class “automated discovery” in the same context.
