The first round of our eResearch Survey ran at the University of Sydney, the University of Newcastle, University of New England and UNSW, and the findings were presented at the recent eResearch Australasia conference (presentation).
Some interesting results have emerged, shedding light on current attitudes to eResearch. Only 7–23% of respondents had heard about or used services provided by Australian eResearch bodies, such as ANDS, ARCS, NCI, Intersect, or NCRIS. By contrast, over 58% wanted to receive a brief report of the survey.
Both the Summary Report and the Full Technical Report of the eResearch Practices and Requirements Survey are now available here:
- The Summary report (12 pages)
- The Full Technical Report (46 pages)
- The presentation from eResearch Australasia 2009 is available at http://espace.library.uq.edu.au/view/UQ:188820
The survey itself is also currently open (Round 2) here.
