Archivists Managing Research Data? a Survey of Irish Organisations


This paper describes a survey undertaken in 2017 to establish which research data management policies and practices were in place at Irish organisations; the extent to which archivists and records managers were employed to manage research data at those organisations; and the impact that archival skills have on research data management at an organisation. The paper describes the survey methods and data analysis, and presents findings including the presence of archivists and records managers at more than half of the surveyed organisations. Next steps for the research are also outlined.
