Are you curious about which tools your colleagues are using for scholarly communication? Do you use Google Scholar, Mendeley, ResearchGate or Academia.edu? How do you stay informed, and how do you save and share your research results?

Take part and contribute to the ongoing, international survey. It takes 8-12 minutes, and all answers are anonymous.

The survey closes February 10, so do not hesitate in taking part.

About the survey

This survey is part of an ongoing effort to chart the changing landscape of scholarly communication. It is led by researchers at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. They write:

"As new research tools arise, some are widely adopted with varying degrees of success across field, country, and position—while others go unnoticed and unused. This survey charts a large segment of these tools in order to discover both traditional and innovative tools and sites that are used in the discovery, analysis, writing, publication, outreach, and assessment phases of research.

With an eye toward promoting improvements to scholarly communication and improving how we serve our researchers, we are delighted to extend the survey invitation to the University of Oslo. The survey findings will be made public and, by participating, you will help increase the understanding of research workflows and improve efficiency of scholarly communication. You may even gain new insights about your own research processes.

Thank you for your participation."
