What tools do you use to get your research done? Google Drive, Word or LaTeX? Zotero or EndNote? Google Scholar, Web of Science or JSTOR?
Wake Forest University faculty are invited to take a graphical survey about research tool use. It takes 8-12 minutes to complete, and you can opt to receive a visual characterization of your workflow compared to that of your peer group.
Your librarians want to know what tools you use so that we can optimize research support services and resources to better serve your needs. Please take the 101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication survey, developed at Utrecht University. Librarians there are engaged in an ongoing effort to chart the evolving landscape of scholarly communication, and we are participating in this international survey to investigate how tool usage varies by field, country and position. The survey will run until February 2016, and by taking the survey for Wake Forest, we will receive institution-specific data.
Preliminary results of the international survey, as well as the final data set, will be posted on the Innovations in Scholarly Communication site. The Z. Smith Reynolds Library will share the Wake Forest data set and produce a report.
For questions about the survey, please contact Molly Keener at x5829.
