Research Culture Survey Open

Published: 14 June 2019

Share your thoughts on research culture, what’s working and how we can improve things

We want Glasgow to be the place where good researchers want to come (and stay!) to do excellent research. We are committed to promoting a positive research culture and have introduced a raft of measures to support this, including training, support staff, research integrity advisors, IT innovations and new policies.

However, all of this work is meaningless if it does not change what is felt on the ground. We have introduced this survey as a way of understanding where we are making progress and where there is still work to be done. We will run it again in summer 2020 to track progress.

Responses are anonymous and we will not drill down to a level that allows us to identify individuals. The results will be used to inform future policy, and its practical implementation, as well as training.

If you have any question about the survey, require it in another format or would like support with any of the issues raised in the survey please contact Elizabeth Adams (Researcher Development Manager,

The survey is open to research active staff at the University of Glasgow (including Technical and Specialist roles).
