Survey on practices of research data management and re-use

CHORD talk in interaction

How to process audio or video recorded and transcribed data for data re-use in a legally and ethically adequate way? What skills and tools does a researcher in Switzerland need to manage or share such research data? Questions of this kind are explored in our new ‘CHORD Summer Survey’, which went online just yesterday. The survey is intended for researchers in Switzerland who work with audio and/or video recordings of spoken discourse and their written transcripts. Our aim is to gain a better understanding of the current practices and challenges of sharing and re-using this type of data and to assess the needs of the concerned scientific communities when it comes to data management. 

In the survey, we distinguish between three usage scenarios: researchers using and sharing their own data, researchers using data gathered by others (‘third-party data’), or researchers doing both. Depending on the usage scenario that applies to you, it will take between 5 and 15 minutes to complete the survey.

The survey will be online for two months, from April 29th to June 30th, 2024, and is accessible via this anonymous link.
