DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "International Survey of Research University Faculty: Data Management and Archiving Needs" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This report, based on responses from 104 faculty from research universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, looks closely at the data archiving, curation and management needs of faculty in data intensive fields such as medicine, chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy, statistics and mathematics, engineering, economics and finance, sociology and political science and other data-intensive fields.
The 114-page report reveals the extent to which faculty are impacted by data management and archiving requirements from co-authors, funding sources, academic departments, scholarly publications, data repositories, regulatory bodies, and others with data management requirements.
Data in the report is broken out by many personal and institutional criteria including: age, gender, tenure status, teaching load, subject specialty and academic title of the survey participant, and country of origin, public/private status, and world university ranking of the university affiliated with the survey participant, among other variables. The study looks at how many scholars have imposed data access restrictions on their archived data, and for what reasons or following the strictures of what kind of organization or circumstance. The study also looks at which individuals or offices handle data archiving needs: the individual scholar, academic library, academic department, office of research or other venue.
Just a few of the report's many findings are that:
- Nearly two thirds of post docs and fellows said that the data requirements of journal publishers impacted their work, the highest percentage saying so among all academic titles.
- Scholars in physics and astronomy were the most likely to say that the data requirements of funding sources impacted their work.
- Researchers based in the UK/Ireland were the most likely to say that there is a great or good deal of need for data management and archiving services (30.77%), followed by those in the U.S./Canada (22.66%) and those in Australia/New Zealand (20.00%).
- For 2.91% of those sampled, the university office of research handles data archiving needs.
- 11.65% of those surveyed have had to impose data access restrictions to their data to meet terms of an intellectual property agreement.
