Thank you for agreeing to participate in our survey which aims to help inform researchers, libraries, and publishers about how readers find and access research articles in scholarly journals. The survey is being carried out by Simon Inger and Tracy Gardner, from Renew Consultants.
This survey follows on from work undertaken in 2005, 2008, 2012, 2015 and 2018 and will allow us to report the trends in reader behaviour. The survey findings and all the raw survey data will once again be made freely available. If you would like to read the free 2018 report, a link to it will be given at the end of the survey.
We know your time is precious and so this survey is designed to take you no more than 7 minutes to complete. All your responses are given anonymously.
At the end of the survey you will be redirected to a separate site where you can optionally enter our prize draw for the chance to win one of three $100 Amazon vouchers and optionally elect to receive by email a copy of the findings of this survey and a link to the raw data.
This survey has been kindly supported by the following organisations and you will have been invited to take this survey by one or more of them:
American Psychological Association
American Society for Microbiology
Bone & Joint Publishing
