A Survey for Social Scientists on e-Research

NCeSS/OII Survey on ICTs in Social Research

The Oxford Internet Institute (OII), in collaboration with the UK’s National Centre for e-Social Science (NCeSS), would like to invite you to take part in a short (20 minute) survey. The survey focuses on the role of information and communication technologies such as the Internet in social research.
The survey is designed to be completed whether or not you use digital particular tools as it is a means to gain an understanding of the centrality of a variety of tools to social research. The findings will be useful in directing future capacity building for the social and economic sciences.
Even if you aren’t currently using research tools, we encourage you to complete the survey. The survey will be even shorter in this case, as it will skip a number of the questions based on your answers.


If you know of individuals or e-mail lists that may be interested in these issues, please feel free to forward this e-mail along. We are seeking a wide range of respondents.

Thank you very much for your time and help on this project. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at survey@oii.ox.ac.uk
