- Maximize the value to SIOP of the surveys (salary, career, member practice, etc.) by defining how the data are archived such that they can be reliably retrieved and mined for insights.
Action: Determine how and when surveys have been used in the past and the manner in which they’ve been archived. Define any changes needed and ensure a standing body in SIOP maintains responsibility for them.
Progress December, 2009: Draft guidance developed and in review by committee members. Confirmed data from surveys can be stored on SIOP servers.
- Guide SIOP interactions with third party researchers who wish to use SIOP data or collect data from SIOP members.
Action: Develop the principles by which SIOP permits the membership to be surveyed or accessed as participants in research studies. Ensure a standing body at SIOP reviews research requests.
Progress December 2009: Draft guidance circulated to committee members. The IRC gave guidance regarding the SIOP salary survey, ethics survey, and numerous requests to survey the membership.
Institutional Research Committee goals support SIOP’s third and fourth strategic planning goal by ensuring that key streams of data regarding SIOP members are available for research as appropriate and data are used to ensure SIOP programs and support are valued by members.
