Dear Colleague:

I am writing to invite you to help rank the think tanks that have been nominated for the 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index of the world's leading think tanks.

This is Round II of the 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index rankings process. We are requesting that you now rank the think tanks that were nominated in Round I.

The rankings are broken into three sections: special achievement, area of public policy research and region/location.

The final selections will be made in Round III. International panels of expert that will use the collective input of individuals like you to make informed choices for the 2015 ranking of the world's leading think tanks.

After filling out your name, title, institutional affiliation, country and e-mail address, etc. please use the drop-down menu to make your selection(s) for think tank rankings.

Please review the lists of think tanks in the drop down menus under every question to rank the listed of nominated institutions.

Think Tanks are listed in alphabetical order (A-Z). You must scroll down the list to make your selection. You can only make one selection at a time and it should be in rank order.

Please make sure you save the link to the survey that we sent you if you plan to re-enter the survey.

Please note: when completing the survey, do NOT use the "back" button on your internet browser, this will erase your answers. Instead, use the "prev" button on the bottom of the survey page.


Finally, please bring any glowing omissions or gross anomalies or irregularities to our attention immediately so we can share them with the Expert Panel members.

Thank you for your participation and continued interest in our research on think tanks and civil societies around the world.
