RDA Survey on Researcher Engagement With Data Management
A new initiative under the umbrella of the RDA Libraries for Research Data Interest groups is now collecting contributions on case studies from organisations around the world on how to engage researchers with research data management. A group of volunteers from 3 continents have put together survey to allow participants to share experiences and best practices for increasing engagement. The effort ultimately aims to put together a rich resource for organisations looking to improve their engagement activities. The survey is available at https://www.1ka.si/a/193487 For more details on the initiative view https://rd-alliance.org/blogs/researcher-engagement-data-management
We welcome any questions and suggestions and hope to see this group become a lively exchange forum.
Many thanks and best regards,
on behalf on the RDA IE node team
