Data for this study will be collected through an online questionnaire in response to participation invitations. The questionnaire is designed to elicit a respondent’s practices, experiences, and opinions around the public archiving of research datasets through questions that cover:

  • his or her opinions of community norms
  • recent choices with respect to public data archiving and reuse
  • previous experiences, and
  • attitudes towards hypothetical situations

Questions are multiple-choice.  Participants can expect to spend 7-10 minutes answering the online questionnaire.

The survey is administered using Qualtrics survey hosting, funded through the Odum Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  The survey is distributed in email with an “anonymous survey link” so that email addresses are not directly linked to the responses.
