The Software Sustainability Institute's recent survey of researchers at top UK universities is out. Headlines figure are:

  • 92% of academics use research software
  • 69% say that their research would not be practical without it
  • 56% develop their own software (worryingly, 21% have no training in software development)
  • 70% of male researchers develop their own software, and only 30% of female researchers do

For the full story, see this post on their blog.
