Re: [tdf-discuss] Survey about newcomer experience in LibreOffice - now LIVE!


Hi,

I'm starting my master's on improving document conversion and this survey
is really helpful for me too. I'll pass it along my contact lists, hope it
helps...

Cheers

Hi everyone,

A week or two ago, I posted a message in this list to inform you about my
research project. I basically study the influence of FOSS community
newcomer experience on contributor behaviour (including community
citizenship behaviours).

The survey is now live and can be found at:


https://limesurvey.sim.vuw.ac.nz/index.php?sid=14153&lang=en



The survey targets contributors of the LibreOffice community who started
contributing within approximately the last 2 years.



I would appreciate any kind of support in helping me spread the word about
the survey. The dataset will be released shortly once the survey is
finished using an OpenData Commons license so that people from the
LibreOffice community can study the dataset.


I have already talked to Florian Effenberger and he has been enthusiastic
and supportive towards the project.



For those who have the chance to attend the LibreOffice conference in
Berlin, I would greatly appreciate if you could speak about the survey
there.



I have added below a message that you can use when mentioning the survey
(I can also send you the corresponding .odt or .pdf files for those who
want the actual documents).



I sincerely hope the survey will help the LibreOffice community to remain
a great and awesome project!





Thank you.

SURVEY INVITATION MESSAGE:

Subject: Newcomer experience and contributor behavior in LibreOffice and
other FOSS communities - Survey

I am a PhD candidate in the School of Information Management at Victoria
University of Wellington, and my research topic is about the influence of
newcomer experience on contributor behaviour and performance in Free/Open
Source Software communities.

If you have joined the LibreOffice community within the last 2 years, I
would like to invite you to complete an online survey. I am interested in
hearing from people who are either technical or non-technical contributors,
and who have had either positive or negative newcomer experiences.

The data you provide will help gain insights about the experience of
newcomers within the LibreOffice community. It will also be used to improve
the survey before it is later administered to contributors from other FOSS
projects.

This survey is anonymous, and no information that would identify you is
being collected. The results of the research may be deposited in the
library's institutional repository or presented at conferences or published
as articles in professional or academic journals. You may request to be
emailed the results of this research. Email addresses are stored in a
separate database and cannot be linked to participant responses. The School
of Information Management Human Ethics Committee has approved this research
project.

I expect the survey to take around 20 minutes of your time.

If you know members of the LibreOffice community who you think would be
interested in completing it, please do not hesitate to let them know about
this research.

The survey is available at:
https://limesurvey.sim.vuw.ac.nz/index.php?sid=14153&lang=en

It will be available until Monday, 29 October, 2012.

I will post news about my progress with this research, and the results on
my blog: http://kevincarillo.org. If you have any questions, please
contact me at Kevin.Carillo@vuw.ac.nz or my supervisors Sid Huff at
Sid.Huff@vuw.ac.nz and Brenda Chawner at Brenda.Chawner@vuw.ac.nz.
