A questionnaire to estimate the needs for research data management

Universität Rostock, 2018

Abstract: The development of a data management plan requires detailed knowledge about the research data and the corresponding processes. Moreover, detailed knowledge about the entire data life-cycle in the respective research group is necessary when providing support with respect to reproducibility and data management. In order to allow curators to gain this knowledge, we developed a questionnaire, which provides a set of topics including questions to inspire discussions on data management and the data life-cycle. This questionnaire consists of a collection of questions targeting different phases of the data life-cycle. It was developed in order to gain insight about the data management practices in the subproject of the collaborative research centre 1270 ELAINE, but can also be used as guideline for so interviews with individual research groups.
