Research Data Management Training for Support Staff: A DaMaRO Project Survey

The DaMaRO Project has released Research Data Management Training for Support Staff: A DaMaRO Project Survey.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

A few weeks ago, in collaboration with our colleagues from the DataPool Project in Southampton, we ran a survey for staff involved in supporting researchers at the University of Oxford. . . .

The survey asked support staff about a range of different research data management tasks. For each task, we asked them how confident they personally felt to advise researchers on this. As it's clearly unrealistic to expect all support staff to advise on all topics, we also asked how confident they felt of their ability to refer researchers to the appropriate person, organization, or resources for advice.

The responses revealed that current average confidence levels are low to moderate at best. Respondents did in general seem slightly more confident about referring researchers elsewhere for advice, but there's still a lot of room for improvement here.
