Survey instrument designed to assess the research data management (RDM) practices and perceptions of researchers using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study human neuroscience. The survey includes 74 multiple choice questions ordered roughly according the phases of a typical research project including data collection, analysis, and sharing. It was designed in collaboration with active researchers and focuses on a range of RDM topics, including the type of data collected, software and tools used to analyze and manage data, and the degree to which data management practices are standardized within a research group. It also includes rating questions on the maturity of their data management practices and those of the field at large on a 1-5 scale from ad hoc to refined and inquires about perceptions of new scholarly communications practices including data sharing, data reuse, and Open Access publishing.
