Abstract

A key objective of Planets subproject DT/7 is to shed light on the types of communication that are important in academic and e-government communities and the implications for preservation. To achieve this, a broad spectrum of methods has been employed, including in the first phase, qualitative analyses (such as interviews, data probe collections) and, in the second phase, quantitative analyses (questionnaires). This specific deliverable DT/7-D4 (“Report based on DT/7 questionnaire”) is concerned with the results of a questionnaire deployed to researchers at Aarhus University. It provides insight from a larger sample into findings elicited from a series of probes conducted during the first phase of the work package and set out in the DT/7-D3 deliverable. This deliverable, DT/7-D4, contains an introduction to the report, background to the DT7 workpackage, a brief description of the deliverable, a summary of the key findings, the methodology, and an analysis of the main findings of the questionnaire launched to researchers at Aarhus University. The appendices contain the questionnaire and the “raw data” in aquantified/summarized form as appendices.
