Research Data Management Survey: Your views are needed!

3 July 2014

The University of Salford recognises the importance of the data generated through our research activities, and is working to improve the way in which research data is securely managed and shared.

As part of this work the Library are conducting a survey of researchers to help them understand current practice surrounding the management of research data. It is critical that they hear from as many researchers as possible, as the results of this survey will inform the development of the infrastructure, support services, and policies that we hope will benefit you. The more information they receive about your research data, the more they can tailor the Research Data Management Service to your specific needs.

This survey is designed to:

  • Help understand the data held by you
  • Discover influences and barriers to managing research data
  • Establish what advice and support you require
  • Identify current levels of research data management practice in Schools

The survey is open until 6pm Tuesday 9th September 2014 and should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

If you are creating and/or managing research data please take time to complete the survey here.
