https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TVQ7RY6

What tools are you using to work with  your research data? ("work with" can mean: manage, analyze, organize, share, and/or publish your data)
This short, anonymous poll, targeted at researchers, aims to characterize the range of research data management tools that are used across domains and regions. 

The survey is only one-page long and will take less that 5 minutes to complete.

The poll will be open from June 15 to July 31, 2015.

It is being conducted by Research Data Alliance (RDA) Long Tail of Research Data Interest Group.
The results will be reported at the next RDA meeting in Paris in September 2015 and also made available through the Long Tail Interest Group webpage.
