The Platform Mathematics, Astronomy and Physics (MAP) of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) is launching this survey as a response to recurring comments, questions and sometimes concerns expressed by scientists on the transition towards Open Research Data. Following on other activities of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences like the Open Data Workshop and the factsheet on Open Science in Switzerland, the survey aims to collect the diverse opinions of active researchers in Switzerland on this important topic.

The results are foreseen to be published in autumn upon decision by the MAP Plenum. The more of you that participate, the greater weight this could have in shaping the transition to Open Science in Switzerland. Please, take 10-15 minutes of your time to have your say on the transition towards Open Data in Switzerland. Thank you! (Deadline: 15 July)
