Release 6.1 of ANDS software is due for implementation at the end of August.

This exciting release has two major components: a new look and feel for Research Data Australia, and a new approvals workflow in the ANDS Registry that will allow the Sandbox environment to be decommissioned.

We will be conducting two separate usability testing exercises for each of these components, during the period 16-19 August. These exercises are done at your own desk via an online survey. Each survey will take between 1-2 hours to complete.

1. For the Research Data Australia usability testing exercise we need volunteer researchers. Each researcher who successfully completes the survey will receive a $50 book voucher.

2. For the ANDS Registry exercise we need volunteer partners. People who are currently Data Source Administrators would be ideal. Although book vouchers are not available for this exercise we will be providing a small token of our appreciation on successful completion of the survey.

ANDS partners and staff are welcome to volunteer for either or both exercises, however ANDS partners are unfortunately not eligible for the book vouchers associated with the Research Data Australia survey, and ANDS staff are not eligible for either book vouchers or tokens.

Participation in usability testing is a great way to get an early look at the upcoming software release, and to have input into the final product. Each time we conduct one of these pre-release usability testing exercises we really see a jump in the quality and usability of the resultant release. If you can spare the time, please do participate.

If you would like to volunteer, or if you have further questions, please email us at
