Please participate or spread the word -- see call for participation below. Thanks!


Are you a professional, academic, or graduate student who frequently searches for and monitors information relating to your work or area of research? We are interested in your perceptions of the digital environments (e.g., websites, intranets) that you use and how these perceptions may be related to your personality traits and work environment.

Please take approximately 15 minutes of your time to respond to our survey. You will have the chance to enter your name in a draw for one of twenty $20 gift certificates for Amazon.ca.


The study started February 13th, 2013 and will continue until the target number of 300-400 participants is met and may be completed at your convenience. This survey is part of Lori McCay-Peet's Ph.D. research at Dalhousie University that is investigating individuals' experiences in digital environments. This research will help in the development of better digital environments.

Your participation in this study is voluntary and will be kept confidential. You may withdraw at any time.

If you have any questions, please contact Lori McCay-Peet at Dalhousie University: istudy@dal.ca

Thanks to everyone who has participated so far, I am getting some interesting results in the preliminary analysis. I will likely be running this study for the next few weeks as I still need many more participants. So if you haven't already, please participate or spread the word (e.g., Twitter): http://projects.cs.dal.ca/infostudy/survey
