TRIPLE launches User Research Survey: Call for Participation
The TRIPLE project has launched a User Research Survey that will help to tailor the services and tools of the project’s innovative multilingual and multicultural discovery platform to the needs of the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) community.
We kindly invite you to take part in the User Research Survey, which is part of the user research conducted for the European H2020 project TRIPLE. The TRIPLE project was launched on 7 October 2019 with the aim to develop TRIPLE platform, that will be the discovery service of the OPERAS research infrastructure.
The questionnaire is specifically targeted at researchers and academics from the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) at any stage of their careers – from Master student to full professor – who are currently working in a European country.
We are therefore curious to find out what exactly you need and prefer as a potential future user of the TRIPLE platform. In particular, we would like to know more your work practices relating to digital technologies. This includes information on your
- use of tools for discovery used to explore, find, access and reuse material such as literature, data, projects, researchers’ profiles etc. that they would need for their own research work
- use of tools for the management and retrieval of material
- use of tools for conducting research (including data collection and annotation)
- use of tools for networking with colleagues or other stakeholders
- digital literacy and general discovery practices
- hardware devices used in the research cycle
The survey is open until 30 June 2020. It is in English, and it should not take more than 10 to 15 minutes to answer the 21 questions.
Your data will be collected and stored in a fully anonymised form and will only be accessible to the project research team. You can find more information on how your data will be handled in the consent form on the second page of the Survey.
We are looking forward to your input!
Thank you for your cooperation and time!
Should you encounter any technical difficulties, or should you require further information about the Survey, please contact Dr Stefano De Paoli (s.depaoli[a]abertay.ac.uk) or Dr Paula Forbes (p.forbes[a]abertay.ac.uk).
