The Materials Commons is a data repository for the materials sciences. We describe how Materials Commons conforms to FAIR Data and discuss some of the challenges and needs to make data reusable. The FAIR Data principles of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable provide a framework for data reuse, but there is still a large gap to achieving true reusability and understandability. Materials Commons has been extending the ideas of FAIR to help close this gap. We discuss the need for cultural and funding agency changes in order to achieve the larger goal of reuse. We look into how technology, as well as incentives from research funding agencies, can help make published data more reusable.
