Short Survey for Historians of Science, Technology, and Medicine on Online Research Methods and Social Media
The editor of the History of Science Society’s Isis Current Bibliography, Stephen Weldon, is conducting a short survey about how students and professionals in history of science and related fields use reference tools and social media in their research.
The purpose of this questionnaire is to help Weldon’s research team design a new set of discovery and networking tools for research in the history of science. He is working with a group of scholars, librarians, and technical experts on this project, exploring new possibilities for research tools in the current digital environment.
Participation in this survey by anyone whose research may include the history of science, technology, and medicine, whether or not they use the Isis Bibliography, will help provide data on current research practices that will assist in the creation of a new research tool.
You can access the questionnaire at the following address:
The survey will be accessible until Friday, March 15. It should take you only about 10 minutes. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.
