The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is a volunteer organization and it is vital that RDA is able to harness the power of its members to achieve its goals of building social and technical bridges for data sharing as well as to sustain a well-coordinated outcome-driven organization. The purpose of this survey is to engage members of RDA in developing future directions.
In April, the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) hosted the 2015 Research Data Access and Preservation Summit (RDAP15) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Attended by practitioners and researchers, including many members of the Research Data Alliance (RDA), the summit enabled cross-discipline collaboration across multiple organizations to solve research data management issues.
