Research Libraries UK, The National Archives and Jisc citation capture survey – deadline extended

The deadline for the citation survey has been extended to midnight, April 27th 2018

Research Libraries UK, in partnership with The National Archives and Jisc have recently commissioned TheResearchBase to undertake a commissioned study into the citation of archive and special collection holding repositories within academic publications (“Citation Capture”)

As a part of this important research, a survey is being undertaken of archivists, librarians, publishers, and academics regarding how repositories are cited within academic publications.

Survey link: https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=152223148675

The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete and will ask:

  • What information repositories currently gather regarding their users;
  • What guidance is given to users regarding how they should cite a repository within a publication;
  • Whether repositories actively survey citations and the use to which this information is put;
  • The appetite and advantages of establish a more uniform system of citation to archival and special collection repositories.

We would appreciate your time in completing this survey that will help inform this research and future collaborative work between RLUK, The National Archives, and Jisc.

I focus on access and use of digital content in learning, teaching and research, offering guidance and support through the ‘Making your digital collections easier to discover’ online guide and training aimed at Jisc’s higher education members.
Additionally, I run the digital archival collections group purchasing scheme – an innovative purchasing model based on a very simple principle – the more products collectively purchased by our members, the lower the price for everyone involved.
