This dataset comprises of responses to a survey conducted by the Humanities sub-group of the STM Association's Research Data Program in March 2022.

The survey was created by the sub-group which included representatives from academic publishers Taylor & Francis, Routledge, Wiley, F1000, SAGE, Brill, Oxford University Press, and Cambridge University Press, and intended to explore humanities researchers’ current knowledge, attitudes, and experiences of working with, generating, and sharing research data.

The survey was administered via SurveyMonkey and was open for responses from Monday 28 March to Friday 22 April 2022. In total, 422 individual responses were collected, consisting of quantitative and qualitative data. Survey respondents were asked whether their responses could be shared publicly, and 51 requested not to have their responses shared. This dataset therefore consists of a single Excel spreadsheet and includes 371 individual responses in total.
