Now Available: Results From COAR Survey of Research Data Management

From the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR):

2017-01-24_10-37-45Research data management is wide ranging and there are already many organizations active in this area. In December 2016, COAR conducted a survey in order to get a better understanding of the needs of our members in the area of research data management.

There were 43 responses to the survey from around the world. Just over half of respondents are already collecting research data, and about 80% of those who are not yet collecting data indicated that they intend to do so in the coming year.


…survey respondents provided links to their favorite research data management resources. COAR will post these links on the research data management webpage to support capacity building in the area of research data management.
