Doing Science in Times of Covid-19: A Survey

Roex, Karlijn; Colavizza, Giovanni

Abstract

This NWO Corona Fast-Track Data study is a two-wave (non-panel) survey of academic researchers working at Dutch research institutions. Through this survey research we aimed to study scientists’ information gathering and spreading behaviour with regard to the latest scientific information on COVID-19. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the expertise of researchers from medicine and biology, but also social sciences, humanities and economics is urgently needed to counter misinformation. In order to gain timely and otherwise lost insights on how to improve science communication during this crisis, we collected the data in two survey waves. The first wave survey data were collected between 9 June and 31 August; the second between 26 October and 30 November 2020.
