Participate in a survey at https://sunet.artologik.net/uu/Survey/271 to make a push towards easier-to-use archaeological data by telling us what you need to know about data to be able to (re)use it effectively.

The survey is carried out as a part of the CApturing Paradata for documenTing data creation and Use for the REsearch of the future (CAPTURE) research project. CAPTURE has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement No. 818210). 

CAPTURE investigates what information about the creation and use of archaeological research data ( 'paradata') that is needed to make the research data reusable in the future, and how to capture enough of that information. More information about the project can be found at www.uu.se/en/research/capture

You are kindly invited you to share your experience and your views in this survey if you have ever used and/or created and deposited archaeological data (understood broadly, ranging from digital data to finds collections).

The aim of this survey is to identify 

  • what information archaeologists who are or have been using different types of data need to know about the data to (re)use it effectively, and 
  • what archaeologists who have produced consider it to be important for others to know about their data.

Participating in the survey takes approximately 20 minutes.
