Open Data Survey

Are you an active researcher in Switzerland? If yes, this survey is for you. Get your voice heard!

This survey by the SCNAT Platform Mathematics, Astronomy and Physics (MAP) is a response to recurring comments, questions and sometimes concerns expressed by scientists on the transition towards Open Research Data. Following on other activities of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences like the Open Data Workshop and the factsheet on Open Science in Switzerland, the survey aims to collect the diverse opinions of active researchers in Switzerland on this important topic. The results are foreseen to be published in autumn upon decision by the MAP Plenum. The more of you who participate, the greater weight this could have in shaping the transition to Open Science in Switzerland. We have already more than 150 responses, help us reach 200!

The survey is anonymous, though we need your academic position and your field of research in order to best characterise your researcher profile. To ease the completion and the evaluation of the results, we propose multiple-choice answers. The study is intentionally kept very focused with only 16 questions and a small set of possible answers to allow rapid completion and a simple processing and evaluation of the results. An optional field for clarifications, comments and feedback is provided at the end.

Please, take 10-15 minutes of your time to have your say on the transition towards Open Data in Switzerland. Thank you!

Launch: 10 June | Deadline: 15 July

/!\ The "Submit" button at the end is only active when all 16 questions are filled!
