Research culture survey (University of Glasgow)

What is this about?

The University of Glasgow runs a yearly Research Culture Survey to understand their researchers' opinions about the research culture.[1] The survey aims to identify the problems, dilemmas or difficulties that are felt on the ground, what progress has been made, and what work still needs to be done. All research staff are invited to respond anonymously, and the survey contains open and closed questions. The results are used to inform policies and their implementation, as well as training developments.

Why is this important?

When an institution wants to promote a positive research culture, it’s important to know how the researchers working in it actually experience this culture. By listening to and engaging researchers, the institution shows the importance of shared responsibility and stimulates commitment on an individual as well as an institutional level.
