In the Arts and Humanities 'everything is dynamic, attested, contested and researched'... digital tools and methods in the Arts and Humanities are evolving to address a variety of research questions in multiple domains.This questionnaire is designed to assess the use and the variety of Digital Methods in contemporary Arts and Humanities discourse.

Thank you for taking the time to contribute.

This survey began in discussions resulting from the NEDIMAH
cross-disciplinary meeting in Bucharest November 2012, planned by Maria
Bostenaru Dan and Fredrik Palm, and kindly hosted by Maria Bostenaru Dan.

* 1. Where are you located?

* 2. How do you prioritise the following key concepts in your work? Please rank them where 1=most important, and 11=least important:

* 3. What is the place of data in your research process?

* 4. How do you document your critical assessment of both tools and methodologies?

* 5. Which criteria are to be applied in order to decide what data to include and to exclude in the visualisation?

* 6. How do you deal with uncertainty in your data, with deliberate ambiguity, or 'fuzziness'?

* 7. How do you ensure data quality/integrity?

* 8. What issues have you encountered in your use of visualisation? Please rank them in order of importance to your work

* 9. How have you overcome the most important of these issues for you?

* 10. How important are standards in your research process? Please rank your answer, 1-5 where 1 is not important and 5 is very important.

* 11. What standards do you use?

* 12. How do you deal with multiple formats?

* 13. What does visualisation bring to your work?

* 14. How do you build transparency into your processing?

* 15. How does temporality inform the nature of the data you work with?

* 16. What advantages does multidimensionality afford your scholarship?

* 17. How do you capitalise on these additional dimensions, movement, trajectory, momentum, velocity of events and ideas?

* 18. How do you provide for static versus fluid versus dynamic entities within your process?

* 19. How important is the use of narrative in audience interpretation of the visualisation?

* 20. What level of interactivity do you allow users to explore your visualised dataset?

* 21. What level of participation do you allow users with your dataset?

* 22. What role does aesthetics (sensory/emotional value) play in the visualizations you create?

* 23. Do you prioritize generalized tool development or targeted application design?

Many thanks for completing this survey - we will publish the results openly, and as widely as possible.
