Do you use data for research investigations or journalism? We want to help you by identifying barriers to working with data and ways to fill skills gaps.
If you would like to enter our prize draw for a free one-day ticket to the Centre for Investigative Journalism Summer School in London, UK (value £108) submit your responses by 15th June 2017.
Bournemouth University’s Datalabs and the Centre for Investigative Journalism have a successful history of supporting people in data-based research for a range of purposes including journalism, advocacy, academic papers and community activism. However, support for these skills can be difficult to accurately tailor to different audiences.
By taking just ten minutes to complete this survey, you can help us enable more people from more diverse backgrounds to move their research forward by engaging effectively with data tools and the open data movement.
The incorporation of our research findings will be an important step towards building a more flexible provision of training, teaching and support that can be adapted to the needs of a range of different roles and organisations. Such progress will be necessary if open data transparency is ever to be translated into governmental accountability.
