A Quick Note on Survey Responses

We are pleased to be able to announce that, at the time of writing, we have had 232 completed answers to our RDM survey.

The response rate has varied across the Academic Colleges, with the highest number of completed surveys coming from researchers from the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences and the lowest from the College of Humanities. The variation in number of responses probably depends on many factors, including the different methods of publicising the survey in the Colleges, but our feeling is that the word “data” puts off many of those who work in the Humanities.

We tried varying the wording of the communications which went to the College of Humanities, but still feel that we need to engage many of these researchers with our project in a more meaningful way – any suggestions are more than welcome!

The survey is still open for UoE researchers and PGRs and can be found at www.survey.exeter.ac.uk/openexeterrdm.
