Project StORe: Chemistry Report
The StORe project (http://jiscstore.jot.com/WikiHome) is a collaboration of seven universities across the UK and the Johns Hopkins University in the USA and under funding from the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC, http://www.jisc.ac.uk/). The project sought to develop new ways of linking academic publications with repositories of research data. Within the scope of the StORe project, an online questionnaire survey was launched on the 13th March and ran until 21st April 2006, aiming to gain some understanding about how repositories can be used to support research and scholarly communication and to invite researchers to provide feedback about their use of source and output repositories and their expectations for their future development. In addition to the questionnaire survey, academic staff and postgraduate research students were interviewed in order to gain a deeper insight into their research methods. This report presents the findings from this online questionnaire survey and from interviews with academic staff and postgraduate research students in the domain of chemistry.
