Survey on Out-of-pocket Research Expenses for Scientists


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am posting a link to this survey because I believe the topic is an important one. I think that the expectation that some costs are not going to be reimbursed negatively affects academia's ability to attract workers from all socioeconomic classes. Please see the text from the Survey itself below to determine your eligibility (emphasis is mine):

(SURVEY LINK: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1jYyZ7MYv7bgQmsoS5UhmvgIrRdehBqLfNPAO6Ne8Eyw/viewform?c=0&w=1)

Purpose of the Study:
This is a study conducted by Dr. Edward Hind (independent researcher) and Dr. Brett Favaro (Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's NL). Our purpose is to examine how much of their own personal money scientists spend on their research programs, and to compare these values across stage of career.

Please only take this survey if you consider yourself a scientist or researcher. The stage of your career is not important. We would like scientists from undergraduates to retired scientists to take this survey. Please do not take this survey if you are aged under 18.

Please only fill out the survey once per person. This survey will be open until 31 May, 2015.




Note: Just to be absolutely clear, in this survey, "scientist" means "natural scientist" as well as "social scientist". Their goals are to find trends between disciplines as well as stage of career.

Some background (from one of the researchers on this project) to what got this question going is here:http://www.southernfriedscience.com/?p=18240
