Participate in a Study on Humanities Research!

NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering is conducting a survey about how humanities professionals use online databases. We would like to know how digital resources might be changing the method and substance of humanistic inquiry, and how well they suit the needs of researchers. We are looking for NYU graduate students in the humanities, 18 years of age or older, who are willing to provide candid responses to an online survey about their research. Please use the following link to launch the survey here: NYU Polytechnic Humanities Research Survey.
This link will expire in 15 days. As a reward for participation, after completing the survey you will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $50 gift cards to After we analyze the survey results, we will ask a small group of respondents if they are willing to participate in a 90-minute, in-person follow-up study. Each person who is selected for this portion of the study and chooses to participate will be compensated with a $150 gift card.

This survey is part of a research project being conducted by NYU faculty members. All information entered into the survey will be analyzed anonymously. NYU Net IDs will be retained only for purposes of contacting selected respondents for further paid participation in an organized research activity. We seek to eventually publish the research, and may quote anonymously from your survey responses. We also may use our findings to create a new humanities digital resource.
