Comparing Research Journals Quality #2: FAIR metrics of journals

Henry Rzepa pointed me to this helpful CrossRef tool that shows publisher and journal level metrics for FAIRness (see also this post):
FAIR metrics for the Journal of Cheminformatics.
The Journal of Cheminformatics is doing generally well. This is what FAIR metrics are about: they show you what you can improve. They show you how you can become a (better) open scientist. And our journal has a few attention points:
J. Cheminform. does not do well with sending these bits of information to CrossRef.
It's nice to see we already score well on ORCIDs and funder identifiers. I am not sure why the abstracts are not included, and text mining URLs could point to something useful too, I guess. The license URL sounds a bit redundant, since all articles are CC-BY, but downstream aggregators should not guess this from a journal name (or ISSN), and I'd welcome this proper annotation too.
