Kirsten A. Johnson, Ph.D., an Associate Professor at the Department of Communications at Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, Pa, has a request. She's doing research about citizen journalism efforts around the country and would like your views as users and contributors to this site. The more responses she gets, the more accurate the results can be. We filled out our survey, and she followed up and asked us to invite you and share the link.
If you'd like to share your views, please consider taking a few moments to fill out her survey at:
Here is her official introduction to the project:
"My name is Dr. Kirsten Johnson and I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of Communications at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. I’m working on a project with Dr. Burton St. John, an Associate Professor of Communications at Old Dominion University in Virginia regarding citizen journalism and I’m hoping you can help us.
You’re being contacted because we believe you do some form of citizen journalism (e.g., reporter, columnist, editor, photographer) at a citizen journalism website. We’re interested in understanding, through a short survey, how you view your role as a citizen journalist. The survey should only take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete."
