Happy Holidays Asis-l community,
Recognizing this is not the ideal time to request survey participation (end of semester and holiday season), please participate in this study when your schedule permits (possibly during a rest from family, food, friends, and football over the holidays).  Despite many leadership development programs across disciplines and domains, there are some factors that continually enable and impede researcher leadership independent of the program itself. This study seeks to explore some of those factors from the perspectives of faculty and researchers across diverse scholarly communities.
PROJECT TITLE: Enablers and Barriers to Researcher Leadership Survey
RESEARCH QUESTION: What are some factors that enable and impede researcher leadership?
INTRODUCTION: The UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved this study on December 16, 2015.  This study that seeks to explore some of the factors believed to enable and impede researcher leadership.  Your participation will involve answering thirteen (13) questions on enabling and impeding factors concerning researcher leadership across four domains.  The four domains are (1) People and Interpersonal Relationships, (2) Institutional Structure, (3) Personal Considerations and Commitments, and (4) Intellectual and Psycho-social Characteristics. This framework and domains are developed from the Supports and Barriers to Teacher Leadership: Reports of Teacher Leaders (Zinn, 1997<http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED408259.pdf>) and School Librarians as Technology Integration Leaders: Enablers and Barriers to Leadership Enactment (Johnston, 2011<http://diginole.lib.fsu.edu/etd/3480/>) research projects.  The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Faculty/researchers of funded projects (e.g. DataONE, EarthCube, iDigBio), LIS, iSchools, CLIR/DLF Postdoc Community<http://www.clir.org/fellowships/postdoc/fellowsupdate>, and 2015 NM EPSCoR<http://www.nmepscor.org/> Postdocs are part of the target audience for this study and your participation is significant to the success of this project.
