Data asset framework (DAF) survey results 2016

This fileset includes a guidance document with the full DAF question set, and the csv dataset arising from six Data Asset Framework (DAF) surveys. These were completed in July and August 2016 by a total of 1,185 researchers at the following UK higher education institutions:

» The University of Cambridge

» Lancaster University

» Plymouth University

» The Royal College of Music (RCM)

» University of St Andrews

The surveys were developed and administered by Research Consulting, as part of a consultation phase to inform the Jisc Research Data Shared Service project. The anonymised dataset is being released in full to allow re-use by others. Full details on the survey methodology and an analysis of the results are available at: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.177856
