Univ of Missouri’s RJI conducts national iPad news survey

Our friends at the University of Missouri asked that we alert you to this on-going survey:

The Reynolds Journalism Institute is conducting a national survey of Apple iPad users to help journalists, journalism educators and other media practitioners better understand how widespread adoption of the iPad and similar mobile devices may influence the future of news media. Your participation is very important to the success of the survey.

The survey contains only 20 questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will remain completely anonymous.

Participants who complete this survey and agree to participate as panelists in one or more follow-up iPad News surveys may be eligible to receive a $10 iTunes Gift Card for each follow-up survey they complete in 2011. To be eligible, panelists must be 18 years of age or older, a United States resident, and an Apple iPad user.

Please take the survey before September 30. Your participation in this survey is absolutely voluntary. The information you provide will be kept completely confidential, so that you cannot be identified. You may stop or refuse the survey at any time when you do not feel comfortable with it.

Additional information about the survey can be found on the RJI website.
