The first phase of this project is to gather information about the needs of researchers– how do they want to get credit for the data they produce? What do they want to know about how their data is used? What do they want to know about others’ data to evaluate quality? We connected with the community to determine requirements and understand use cases.
In November and December of 2014, we conducted a pair of online surveys of researchers and data managers (i.e., database or repository staff), asking questions about data sharing, discovery, and metrics. In recruiting survey respondents, we reached out to researchers from across subject areas, career levels, and affiliations. We used several tools including social media (Twitter feed, blogs), listservs, face-to-face interactions at conferences, meetings, and other venues.
We solicited responses using social media (Twitter feed, blogs at the CDL and PLOS), listservs, and face-to-face interactions at conferences, meetings, and other venues.
