The University of Sheffield Research Data Management Survey

The University is undertaking a survey of research data management practices within its research community.  If you undertake research in any faculty at the University of Sheffield, the Research Data Management Service Delivery Group would like to gather feedback on how you manage your research data.

For the purpose of this survey, research data refers to any type of data created, collected, or generated in a digital or non-digital form that is analysed to produce original research results.

The questionnaire is designed to:

  • Assist in the understanding the types of research data held by researchers
  • discover the influences and barriers to managing research data
  • establish what advice and support you require
  • identify current levels of research data management practice in faculties
We will use the information you provide to:
  • inform the RDM user requirements gathering
  • assess what research data we are seeking to manage
  • deliver tools, infrastructure, and policies to facilitate good research data management practice at The University of Sheffield
The survey should take you about 10 to 15 minutes to complete and it can be completed anonymously. If you would like further information on research data management or would be willing to participate in a follow-up interview, then please enter your name and email address at the start of the survey.

This survey is conducted by the University Research Data Management Service Delivery Group, which is exploring issues around a research data management infrastructure (technical and human) to support the research data lifecycle, acknowledging and responding to different practices across subject disciplines.
