Researcher, how do you manage your research data? Please answer the survey by 31 March!

Data management skills are vital to every researcher.

Properly managed and documented research data is easy to find, understand and reuse. You’ll meet funder requirements and enable data sharing and publishing. Aalto University aims at providing enough resources to develop suitable research data management services for researchers.

Aalto University accepted a research data management policy in spring 2016. Research data management working group has published guidelines and information on research data, research data management plans and open data.

Researchers, we  kindly ask you to participate in the survey on research management practices in order to develop services that fit the needs of the researchers.

The survey answers will be published as open data. Your personal information cannot be connected to your responses and to any other information that identifies you. In taking part in this survey, you give a consent to publish the anonymised answers as open data.

Please answer the short survey at https://www.webropolsurveys.com/S/88BF7906C4FA08C1.par by 31 March.

Please, note that Finnish Open Science and Research initiative organises webinars, training and other events during the spring 2017. Look at https://avointiede.fi/koulutusten-ohjelma (in Finnish only) to find out more. For example, there's a webinar on 6 April on the subject "How to publish openly?"
