Evidence of RDM needs and practices of researchers from all disciplines at one larger Canadian university was gathered in 2013. This paper reports on the survey results from 250 respondents around data use, sharing, and management, as well as the researchers' research practices and goes on to discuss the impact on planning for policies, guidelines, services, and infrastructure. Major themes are collaboration, sensitive data, differences across research methods and disciplines, as well as incentives for researchers to improve data use, management and sharing in their fields.
