Fellow BOINCers and crunchers, check out this interesting online survey about BOINC and citizen science in general. You'll need about 10 minutes to complete it and there are plenty of questions dealing with motivation to participate in such projects, so it's a good opportunity to mention Gridcoin and how it benefits computational science, especially since there is a possibility of publishing the survey findings in scientific papers.
You can find the survey form at:
For more info, you can check this thread on Einstein@home forums (the survey is mostly about BOINC in general, so even if you don't run Einstein@home, you will still find it interesting):
Please help Lo Lee, a first-year doctoral student from Library and Information Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, by filling in an online survey about Einstein@Home and BOINC. Lo Lee is doing a project on citizen science that aims to assess to what extent citizen science can be designed as an inclusive online learning environment to embrace volunteer diversity. The findings from this project will be submitted to academic conferences, might be published in scientific papers, and could also help us improve Einstein@Home by finding out a bit more about the motivations of our participants.
