Scoping Study Interviews - Call for volunteers

As I mentioned in the previous post, I am conducting interviews from the end of April until mid June and welcome candidates who wish to participate in the study to share the views and issues of their research community.

This is an excellent opportunity for researchers at all levels to specify their requirements for data management services (including creation, storage, sharing, publishing, preservation, etc), so that these can be addressed in future developments.  

If you would like to take part in the scoping study, interviews should not take longer than 1 hour, please get in touch with me at

In case you don't have the time to participate in the interviews but still want to comment about your data management needs, you can do so in the previous post

Scoping Study - Space for Comments

I am currently conducting interviews until mid June for the Scoping Digital Repository Services for Research Data Management.  These interviews aim to document how researchers at Oxford manage their data and capture their requirements for services to help them doing this more effectively.

We are aware of the busy schedule of our researchers and the impossibility for many of them to participate in these interviews. This is the reason why we invite researchers from Oxford who cannot attend the interviews to use this space to comment on their data management needs.

Please leave your comments below!
