FAIR data use survey

You are invited to participate in a survey about the increasingly open use of data in science. This is being sent from the American Geophysical Union along with a set of partners, including the Coalition for Publishing Data in Earth and Space Sciences (COPDESS), Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) and Research Data Alliance (RDA). The research has been supported by Arnold Ventures (previously the Laura and John Arnold Foundation), with additional support from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature, Science , National Computational Infrastructure, AuScope, the Australian Research Data Commons, and the Center for Open Science.

Your participation in the survey is voluntary and your responses will not be individually identified. We estimate that it will take 10-15 minutes to complete the survey. You can participate in the survey at the following link:


A summary of the findings will be shared back with you in a format designed to assist your location and others to achieve the full potential.

The survey is being conducted by Professor Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld of Brandeis University, who is an expert in organizational effectiveness and stakeholder alignment.
