I am conducting a ~10 minute survey which I hope you can fill out and share with your networks:

This survey asks questions about the research culture in your field/discipline, including possible barriers to doing open science such as publishing ideas, methods, data, etc. I believe it is relevant here because better open research practices will enable the innovation that's needed for conservation!
The deadline for submission is end-of-day on Sunday, February 5 2023 (AoE).
Everyone who completes and submits this survey can choose to enter a drawing for a prize worth GBP £25!!!
Anonymised results will be summarised in a report I am writing for UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the primary public research funder in the United Kingdom. It will inform a better understanding of, and possible reforms to, research institutions and the development of new research publishing platform(s). I am doing this wearing my hat as an open science researcher at the University of Bristol in the Octopus project.
Most importantly, please share this survey among your networks! I hope to get responses from researchers representing diverse disciplines in the natural and social sciences, especially those who are NOT strongly aware of or advocates for open science. Or, if you can suggest other places to share this survey do let me know.
Please respond if you have any questions/concerns, and thank you in advance for your time!
