Open Data Survey - Belmont Forum

We here invite you to share your views and experiences on data publishing, access and use. The Open Data Survey targets researchers of various science communities, interested laypersons, government employees, and others who are providing and/or using open data in the scope of global environmental change, or are planning/interested in doing so in the future. This survey is being developed and distributed by the Belmont Forum E-Inf. & DM CRA WP5 (Further information available at the end of this e-mail).

We are interested to learn more about:

  • Key open data activities in various communities with global environmental change to identify leading examples of best practice from a user perspective;\
  • Reasons where users' desire to share can be enhanced by new/other developments;
  • Barriers to "open data sharing" from a user perspective (as a data provider or data user).

Based on the results from the survey we aim to produce recommendations for research funders on how to support global e-infrastructures using a coordinated and sustainable approach - from the planning phase, implementation, and management of data, analytics and through international collaboration.

Thank You for your contribution.
