National Archives – online survey

Help The National Archives develop services for academics and researchers

Dr Matt Greenhall, Head of Academic Engagement at the National Archives has advised us that they are running an online survey to find out more about the needs of academics and researchers, the ways in which they 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, they 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
  • Identification of perceptions of The National Archives and its role

This project is part of their wider commitment to advancing knowledge through academic liaison and interdisciplinary research, as set out in their 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 by 12 February.
