Dear all
              WDS, Elixir and Royal Holloway are surveying users of computational notebooks (e.g. Jupyter notebooks) or Virtual Research Environments (VREs), also known as Scientific Gateways. Computational notebooks can be best described as instances of 'literate programming' where code can be run, text and visualisations can be seen, and data can be accessed.

The data gathered here will provide insights into how notebooks are being employed and how to ensure they can be used more. The data on VREs will be used to improve those services.

This survey should take no more than 10 minutes of your time to complete; questions with an asterisk require a response, and it would be immensely helpful if you could spare the time to respond fully to all questions. The survey does not gather information to identify the participants, apart from discipline and nationality data.

If participants wish to share their contact details they will be placed in a draw for $50 to go to a charity of their choice. They will also get early access to the data. The email addresses will be deleted once the data has been made public. We value your contribution and look forward to sharing the outcomes with you.

This survey will close September 15th, 2021, at 23:59 UTC.

Best wishes
