Dear Michael Barbour,

Is science communication important? Does public engagement really matter? Should the scientific community do more or less to support these activities? Here’s your chance to be heard.

If you have already completed the survey, THANK YOU! No further action is required.

If not, please help us improve our understanding of scientific communication and public engagement by completing the following 15-minute survey:

The study is covered by the Institutional Review Boards (IRB) of the University of Texas-Austin and Michigan State University. Participation in the survey is voluntary, and all responses are anonymous and confidential. Additional information, including contact information for any questions, is provided in the introduction to the survey at the link above.

The American Educational Research Association is one of thirty professional societies participating in this landmark survey – administered by ScienceCounts and the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science – to assess members’ views on science communication and public engagement. Your responses will help us better serve our members, as well as help shape the trajectory of community-wide science communication and public engagement efforts.

Thank you for generously donating your time to support this important endeavor.


Felice J. Levine, Ph.D.
