This survey seeks views on the Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF). The findings will help the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland plan for the future development of the framework.

The survey covers the national framework and emerging regional frameworks: Future Thinking on Carved Stones in Scotland; RARFA; SESARF, HighARF, SIRFA, and PKARF.  If you have ever used or had any involvement with ScARF, please complete this short survey which will close on Wednesday 31st July.

Launched in 2012, the framework was designed to provide an ever growing record of the state of knowledge about Scotland’s past, in order to inform research priorities. It provides a platform for researchers to both contribute and access research findings. Latterly the development of regional frameworks has sought to add regional detail to the national picture. This survey seeks views from all users about how you use ScARF; your experience of contributing to the evolving regional frameworks; and priorities for future development. The survey is mostly multiple choice and should take no more than ten minutes to complete.

This evaluation is being undertaken by Jo Robertson, on behalf of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. We look forward to hearing your views.
