Reminder Data Steward Career Tracks survey

12 Sep 2022

Dear RDA members,


A kinder reminder about the survey on Data Steward Career Tracks, organized by our RDA Professionalising Data Stewardship Interest Group.  


Research Data Management (RDM) professionals like Data Stewards are playing an increasingly vital role in research practices. However, such role has not been recognized as a profession in the academic system. With this survey, we would like to better understand the current and future career perspectives of people who were/are hired as Data Stewards or work(ed) in similar RDM support roles, and seek participants (volunteers) who would like to provide more insightful input. This initial study will serve as the starting point for studying the career trajectory of Data Stewards across different regions and organizations.  


The survey will be closed on 20 October 2022. The results of the survey will be published in blogs and shared via the RDA mailing list.


We really appreciate all the valuable input receive so far! Please help us to further disseminate the message within your network, especially with colleagues from Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania, North and South America


Thanks for your collaboration.
