I am the community engagement and outreach coordinator for the Arctic Data Center. As the primary data repository for the National Science Foundation’s Arctic Program, we are interested to hear from the community, specifically regarding how data sharing and reuse is viewed, and what networking and engagement opportunities would be valuable for the community. In collaboration with the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (), & the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (), we are jointly conducting a survey of the Arctic research community.

The survey is open to all individuals who engage in Arctic research activities and we welcome diverse perspectives across disciplines, career stages, organizations, knowledge systems, and geographies including but not limited to individuals engaged in Arctic research projects that currently receive U.S. federal funding, or have in the past.
The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and will be open until June 15th, 2022. All questions are optional and you may remain anonymous. There are no risks to respondents completing this survey. Responses will be anonymized and available to the public after collection. Consent may be withdrawn at any time by email. If you have colleagues who would also be willing to provide input to this effort, we would be grateful for any assistance extending this survey invitation to others in your professional network.
