Welcome to the survey on the management of research data in chemistry!
Data plays an increasingly important role in chemistry. The National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) is an initiative by the German federal and state governments. Its aim is creating an interdisciplinary network for enabling the sustainable treatment of research data according to the FAIR guiding principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). We, the chemistry consortium NFDI4Chem, aim to seamlessly digitalise the entire workflow in chemical research. Starting at the bench with the provision of open-source electronic lab notebooks (ELNs), through developing standards, interfaces, and tools, NFDI4Chem strives to remove the analogue gaps from the digital data lifecycle. Publishers and funding bodies are also already beginning to make requirements for FAIR research.
An important part of our work is to continuously assess the community`s requirements for handling their chemical data. We would like to invite you to tell us about your opinion on research data management and your experiences with data processing, data exchange with colleagues, archiving and publication of data in this survey.
The survey comprises 25 to a maximum of 37 questions. It should not take any more than 15 minutes of your time.
The results of this survey will support us to respond to the community's requirements and adapt our work plan accordingly to provide you with tools and resources you require.
The results of this survey will be published as a report on the NFDI4Chem website and in a document repository after completion.
We would like to thank you in advance for your participation. We will donate one euro to SOS-Kinderdörfer e.V. for each participant who completes the entire survey.
