To date we have 78 complete responses to the survey – thank you so much to those who have completed it.

It will remain open until April 30th so plenty of time left!

We have also have two meetings of the Focus Group which have been useful but we would love to talk to more people.  If you want to contact us directly to have a chat that would be great.  We are looking to have another group session soon.

After Easter we will be combining all the responses and comments we have had.  We will report our findings soon.

The Survey is now live:

DORA (De Montfort Open Research Archive) Online Survey 2011

Feedback to enhance the capabilities of DORA for Researchers

DORA is the University’s repository for research outputs (full explanation below)

DORA recently obtained funding from JISC for the EXPLORER project which is working to enhance the capabilities of DORA by: 

*        Making it more user friendly

*        Accessible to all

*        Clearly outlining the benefits of the system to Researchers

As part of the project we are carrying out an online survey, focused on gathering information relating to current usage, possible enhancements and future requirements.  We appreciate all your feedback and would ask that you forward this email to any research and related staff to complete this questionnaire even it they have had little or no contact with DORA.

The survey will take about five minutes to complete and can be found at:


Many thanks for your participation
