&lt;p&gt;This data set contains:&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Full raw (anonymized) and cleaned data files of the 2015-2016 global Survey on Innovations in Scholarly Communication. Data are in xls&amp;nbsp;format (raw and cleaned) and csv format (only for cleaned data as the raw data contain non-Roman script).&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Survey questionnaires for 7 languages (zipped PDFs)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Variable list (xls)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Readme file (txt)&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The data files contain &amp;gt;3,000,000 cells, and thus cannot be opened in their entirety in Google Drive.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Many new websites and online tools have come into existence to support&lt;br /&gt;
scholarly communication in all phases of the research workflow. To what extent&lt;br /&gt;
researchers are using these and more traditional tools has been largely&lt;br /&gt;
unknown. This 2015-2016 survey aimed to fill that gap. Its results may help&lt;br /&gt;
decision making by stakeholders supporting researchers and may also help&lt;br /&gt;
researchers wishing to reflect on their own online workflows. In addition,&lt;br /&gt;
information on tools usage can inform studies of changing research workflows.&lt;br /&gt;
The online survey employed an open, non-probability sample. A largely&lt;br /&gt;
self-selected group of 20663 researchers, librarians, editors, publishers and&lt;br /&gt;
other groups involved in research took the survey, which was available in seven&lt;br /&gt;
languages. The survey was open from May 10, 2015 to February 10, 2016. It&lt;br /&gt;
captured information on tool usage for 17 research activities, stance towards&lt;br /&gt;
open access and open science, and expectations of the most important&lt;br /&gt;
development in scholarly communication. Respondents&amp;rsquo; demographics&lt;br /&gt;
included research roles, country of affiliation, research discipline and year of&lt;br /&gt;
first publication.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;A full description of data collection, survey response and methodology is in a data publication in F1000 Research:&lt;/p&gt;
