Via Mind Hacks encuentro esta iniciativa tan chula de una investigadora de la Imperial College of London, Alice Bell. La única información que da al respecto es que está «doing some research on brain bloggers». No detalla los objetivos que persigue con este proyecto, ningún tipo de hipótesis… Nada. Aunque es curioso, cuanto menos.
Estas son las preguntas de la encuesta.
What do you blog about?
Do you feel as if you fit into any particular community, network or genre if science blogging? (e.g. neuroscience, bad science, ex-sbling)
If so, what does that community give you?
Are you paid to blog?
What do you do professionally (other than blog)?
How long have you been blogging at this site?
Have/ do you blogged elsewhere? When? Where?
Would you describe yourself as a scientist, or as a member of the scientific community? Do you have any formal/ informal training in science? (if so, what area?)
Do you have any formal training in journalism, science communication, or similar?
Do you write in other platforms? (e.g. in a print magazine?)
Can you remember why you started blogging?
What keeps you blogging?
Do you have any idea of the size or character if your audience? How?
What’s your attitude to/ relationship with people who comment on your blog?
What do you think are the advantages of blogging? What are its disadvantages/ limitations?
Do you tell people you know offline that you’re a blogger? (e.g. your grandmother, your boss)
Is there anything else you want to tell me about I haven’t asked?
Si conocéis a alguien que pueda estar interesado, comentádselo, a ver qué sale al final :).
