Help us develop services for academics and researchers
The National Archives are running an online survey to find out more about the needs of academics and researchers and the ways in which we might work more closely with the academic and scholarly communities, and to help inform the development of our services.
If you are an academic, early career researcher, postgraduate student or independent researcher, we would like to hear from you. The survey takes around 10-15 minutes to complete and will cover, amongst other things:
- key changes and challenges in the research and academic landscapes in the next five years
- ways in which The National Archives might support and work more closely with academics, research students, research bodies, and the scholarly community
- perceptions of The National Archives and its role
This project is part of our wider commitment to advancing knowledge through academic liaison and interdisciplinary research, as set out in our four-year business plan, Archives Inspire 2015-19.
DJS Research, a market research company, has created the survey and will be analysing the results. As an independent market research company, abiding by the Market Research Society Code of Conduct, DJS Research ensures all data and personal details collected remain protected, confidential and unattributed.
Please complete the survey between 21 January and 12 February – thank you.
