Perceptions of news reports and press releases among scientists
News reports of science should contain sufficient information for people to understand the findings and their implications. Scientists and journalists have different views on whether this goal is achieved. The aim of the present survey is to ascertain the scientists' perception of press releases and news reports.
The study takes about 10 minutes to complete and consists of multiple choice and open-ended questions about your perceptions of news reports (your own and those of others).
You may omit any questions you do not wish to complete. This survey is anonymous.
