Research Data Management Survey

Many thanks to everyone who responded to our survey on research data management needs in September 2015. We present results.

Many thanks to everyone who responded to our survey on research data management needs in September.   The findings highlight a number of areas where researchers would benefit from more co-ordinated and joined up University provision: from guidance on metadata creation, to clearer information about University services, and advice and support on how to comply with legal and ethical requirements.

Respondents identified their top five concerns as:

  1. a need for more RDM training and support
  2. services to guarantee long term digital preservation
  3. more and faster storage capacity
  4. greater interoperability between platforms
  5. RDM solutions that were easy to use.

We have our RDM survey: overview findings (pdf pdf) presentation as well as the results of our 2015 survey on Your research data management needs (pdf pdf)
