Invitation to researchers to participate in an online survey for JoRD
October 17, 2012
Researchers – as stakeholders in the data sharing and policy environment – are invited to participate in an online survey for project JoRD.
JoRD (Journal Research Data Policy Bank) is a JISC funded initiative conducting a feasibility study into the scope and shape of a service to collate and summarise journal policies on Research Data. Such a service could provide researchers, managers of research data and other stakeholders with a central source of reference to understand and comply with these policies.
The project has just launched an online survey aimed at researchers. The survey is part of the stakeholder consultation phase of the project and aims to gauge researcher opinions/practices concerning research data, data sharing, the policies of journals, and thoughts on the shape of such a service.
The results of the survey will allow us to build a picture of researcher needs and will help inform recommendations made by the report.
The link to the online survey is given here:
Please feel free to distribute this link to other researchers that you may know.
We plan to keep the survey open until the end of Sunday 4th November.
