JoRD Online Survey Launch

JoRD (Journal Research Data Policy Bank) is a JISC funded initiative conducting a feasibility study into the scope and shape of a service to collate and summarise journal policies on Research Data. Such a service could provide researchers, managers of research data and other stakeholders with a central source of reference to understand and comply with these policies.

The project has just launched an online survey aimed at researchers. The survey is part of the stakeholder consultation phase of the project and aims to gauge researcher opinions and practices concerning research data, data sharing, the policies of journals, andthoughts on the shape of such a service.

The results of the survey will allow the project to build a picture of researcher needs and will help inform recommendations made by the report.
