Database Research Publication

I have been working on my part time research, at The Open University, for my doctorate for a number of years which is a study into best practices and procedures used in the management of database systems
For the start of any research it is necessary to accurately baseline the field of study. This baseline was created through a worldwide quantitative survey to examine to what extent  best practices and procedures were utilised by the database community for the management of database systems. 453 respondents kindly contributed to the survey. Part of this research from the quantitative stage is now published in the Information Systems journal. 

An Audio Slides presentation is available introducing the paper http://www.sqltoolkit.co.uk/publications.html
