Register Reader Studies

We want you as a new recruit

You may remember that The Register used to run reader surveys online and publish summaries. More than 8,000 of you signed up to participate in the surveys, some conducted online and some by way of email. Some of you may even receive the occasional email from our former survey partner seeking assistance in compiling a survey or two.

Well, we think it's time to start again. We're back with a new survey technology partner, Quocirca, and a heap of enthusiasm. But that's nothing without our readers. Come along with us for the ride. We have nothing to give except our undying gratitude and executive summaries of all the reports you contribute to. Oh, we'll run a monthly draw from Reg Reader Studies members - the winner will get a Reg Shop goody bag.

Reg Reader Studies will run on two tracks. One is State of the Nation stuff, a set of bi-annual barometer studies, which will monitor trends and patterns in IT and the businesses users. The second track is more ad-hoc - surveys of hot, mostly enterprise-led, technologies.

Quocirca will take the anonymous* results and turn it into a report. We'll see if we can get someone to sponsor it and then make it freely available to everyone as a download PDF a couple of weeks later.

Interested? Then fill in the form below.

Sign up should only take a couple of minutes. The information we ask for includes your name and email address, we will be the only ones to use that information. And we will only use it to let you know when the studies are ready. QNB Intelligence will use the other information, about company size, roles etc, to build generic profiles of the people completing the study - so we can say that X% of people work in SMEs, or are developers etc. We won't pass any personal details onto anyone else.
