The Scientist Survey

Today I’d like to announce an opportunity for the scientists out there: the chance to take part in the New Voices Scientist Survey.

As part of the New Voices initiative—which we hope will empower scientists to become strong communicators and spokespersons for research—we are investigating scientists’ attitudes toward public communication and the policy process. I would like to invite you to participate in this initiative by completing a brief survey about these issues. The entire process takes approximately 10 minutes.

The purpose of this project is to gain a better understanding of how scientists perceive science communication and the policy process. The results will be used to guide our efforts with the New Voices and will be available here on the New Voices blog in November.

Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. Any identifying information will remain confidential and your responses will not be associated with you personally. To complete the survey, click here.

We want to reach as many scientists as possible, and your participation would be greatly appreciated! Also, it would be most helpful if you would pass this on to any scientists you know who might be interested in taking part.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at ipeterson (at) Thanks!
