This Survey seeks to determine your personal experience regarding the protection of academic freedom. The Survey has been designed as part of a research project on academic freedom conducted at the University of Lincoln, UK and is funded by the European Union through Marie Curie research funds. The findings will be made known in academic journals and also generally to the public.
This Survey has 4 Sections (A.-D.). Each Section starts on a new page. You can move forward and backward to another Section. It should not take you more than 20 minutes to complete the Survey.
Should you wish to do so, you may answer Sections in separate sessions – answers will be saved, provided you use the same computer.
Your answers will only be submitted once you press the "Done" button at the end of the Survey (at the end of Section D.).
If you prefer not to answer questions in Parts C and D on yourself and your academic work and responsibilities, feel free not to answer any or all of them.
All those participating in the Survey (and providing their email address at the end of Section D.) stand the chance of winning one of three iPads. The winner will be determined by lottery.
