Requesting access to online surveys
The Jisc online survey tool is designed for Academic Research, Education and Public Sector organisations. It’s a powerful, easy to use tool for creating online surveys and is used by over 300 different organisations in the UK and internationally. It allows you to develop, deploy, and analyse surveys via the web.
If you are a member of staff or PGR, to request access to online surveys, please raise a request via the TIS helpdesk. If you're an undergraduate or post graduate taught student, then please raise your request via the Customer Experience Team within the library. For bulk accounts (e.g. programmes of undergraduate students), please raise this via the TIS helpdesk. If you’ve chosen to undertake a survey as part of your research project, you will be asked to provide the following information within three months of being given access to JISC online surveys.
- Ethical approval for your study (if required). For undergraduate students, the supervisor may have overarching ethical approval.
- Confirmation of completion of GDPR training.
- Research Data Management Plan (if required).
For undergraduate students, the supervisor may have an overarching data management plan.
If you plan to do any further surveys related to new studies (not related to the original request), then you are required to send your ethical approval confirmation and research data management plan to email@example.com
for each new study.
JISC Online Surveys is not intended to be used for data storage. Within the service, the survey owner can archive/export data if needed. It is the survey owners responsibility to ensure they have data backups and to remember
to remove data from JISC Online Surveys on to the University of Plymouth’s secure One Drive
system (which will be stored for a maximum of 10 years) once they no longer require access
to the data on JISC Online Surveys.
