Dear Discipline-specific Guidance for DMPs Working Group (WG) Members,
After months of hard-work, we finalized our survey which cover the current state of disciplinary-specific data management practices, knowledge or service gaps and overlaps between disciplines. Many of you have contributed to the preparation of this survey. We sincerely thank you for all your support and contributions.
Now we would like to ask you to participate in the approximately 15-minute survey and help us create the catalogue for your discipline:
If you would like to help us by sharing the survey with researchers and/or research support staff in your communities, we would highly appreciate it. Please feel free to make use of the invitation at the bottom of this email for this. We thank you in advance for your participation and support.
