Research Data Management Survey

In response to the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, the Office of the Vice President, Research and Innovation invited Faculty, Graduate students and Postdoctoral Fellows to complete a Research Data Management Survey in early 2023. The results of the survey are available in both PDF and PowerPoint format. If you require an alternate format, please email us at

The general purpose of the Research Data Management Survey was to gather input from Ontario Tech community members about the following:

  • Current understanding and awareness of the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy requirements.
  • Current data management practices utilized to manage research data.
  • Current and future data management needs and identification of possible gaps in research data management at Ontario Tech.

The Research Data Management Survey results helped inform Ontario Tech’s Institutional Research Data Management Strategy. The strategy, a requirement of the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, will help the Ontario Tech research community to prioritize planning, resourcing and implementation of research data management practices at Ontario Tech. View the university's Research Data Management Implementation Plan for further details.
