SciLog-ers might be interested in helping out a couple of Science Communication M.Sc. Students.
If you’ve ever been in the situation of needing to recruit respondents for survey questionnaires, you’ll perhaps appreciate how troublesome it can be. So please consider completing and/or promulgating the following online surveys:
1. ‘a piece of original research into the public awareness and perception of a certain scientific discipline.’
2. ‘looking at news sources, brand identity and how trust is transferred across different media’
For more information, see their full verbatim messages below:
My name is Julie Gould, and I am currently studying at Imperial College for the science communication masters.
As part of my degree I am doing a piece of original research into the public awareness and perception of a certain scientific discipline.
I have put together an online survey and would really appreciate it if you would be able to help me with my research and fill it out.
If you can help, please answer all the questions as honestly as possible. All answers will be collected in complete confidence, and will only be used for analysis purposes and will be sercures in a file which only the researchers can access.
There are a total of 22 questions divided into three sections: A, B, C. In total, the survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
After each question, please click on the “Next” button at the bottom of the page to go on to the next question. At the end of the survey, please click on the “Submit survey” button. At this point, you have the option to leave your contact details if you would like to be debriefed, and get some more information about the research. If you do not wish to leave your details, please feel free to ignore this part of the survey.
