Under the aegis of the Vice President in charge of Research and the Vice President in charge of Digital & Open Science of the Université Paris Cité, in consultation with the three Faculties and the IPGP, and as part of the reflection initiated in 2021 by the University’s Research Data Subcommittee, the research and research support staff of the university are invited to respond individually to a questionnaire on research data at the Université Paris Cité until July 20, 2022.
This questionnaire is part of a post-doctoral action research. It aims to better understand the practices and needs of research personnel in terms of research data, in their disciplinary diversity and objects, in order to adapt the services and support offered by the departments involved in the research data unit (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The definition and development of this service offer will be part of the roadmap of Sous-comité Données de la recherche, which since 2021 has been bringing together representatives of the research communities, service platforms and the university's professional departments.
The questionnaire is intended for anyone involved in research and research support activities (researchers, lecturers, engineers, post-doctoral fellows, doctoral students, etc.), within a research unit which is affiliated to Université Paris Cité.
It completes an initial phase of interviews with a sample of research and research support staff from various profiles and disciplines. The aim of this second phase is to gather feedback from a wider area in order to better understand what the data mean for the different scholarly communities.
Its goal is to learn more about:
1. The stages associated with the data cycle (collection, processing, dissemination, sharing, etc.) by discipline(s).
2. The different people involved.
3. The support needed for these practices.
This questionnaire is organized around seven sections and includes between 42 and 59 questions:
- "Understanding your data",
- "Your data practices",
- "Data Sharing, Dissemination, and Reuse",
- "Research Collectives and the Digital Work Environment",
- "Support and needs around data",
- "Affiliations, functions and disciplinary fields",
- "Getting to know you better".
The total time to fill out the questionnaire is estimated at 20/25 minutes and the latter can be downloaded here: French version and English version.
A summary of the results will be available on the Université Paris Cité Open Science website at the end of 2022: https://u-paris.fr/science-ouverte/.
The deadline to answer is July 20, 2022. For any questions or requests for clarification: email@example.com.
For any question or request for information on research data (data management plan, choice of a warehouse, etc.): firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your participation, which we hope will be very large.
