Research File Service – user requirements survey

The Research File Service (RFS) project is looking at potential systems to provide University of Oxford researchers with secure, affordable, scalable storage for active research data.

The scope and requirements for RFS were initially gathered in 2018, and then updated in early 2020 following a previous proof-of-concept phase. With changes following the pandemic, and potential new ways of working being introduced, the RFS project is seeking to identify the requirements that are now most important to researchers.

Oxford researchers (and others interested in the service) are therefore invited to complete this questionnaire:

The questionnaire will remain available until Tuesday 31 August 2021. It should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.

Should you have any questions, please get in touch with the RFS Project Manager, Shireen Walker <>.
