Employees of the MUG Main Library carried out a survey at 8 medical universities in Poland. The research was aimed to verify the level of scientists' knowledge about research data management as well as attitudes and beliefs that guide the decisions they make about opening research data.

The results of their research will be used to prepare a training program as part of the implementation of the Polish Medical Platform - a portal for knowledge and research potential management.

The MUG Main Library, meeting the recommendations of the European Union and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education on open science policy, shares their research data in the Zenodo repository.
