Cardiff University in the UK  is conducting some global research into media views of open government, transparency and accountability.

This is an independent project but the conclusions will be presented to the Open Government Partnership summit in London in October to representatives of more than 50 countries.

We’re seeking responses from journalists around the world. Would you please consider completing the very brief survey? Please complete it by 31 August 2013.

It will take only a few minutes and will greatly inform the research. If you would consider forwarding this more widely among your colleagues and media network that would also be appreciated.

All survey data will be anonymised – it asks for some information solely so we can judge how wide a spread we have geographically and by platform and role.
