Dear AOIR colleagues,

I would like to invite you to participate in a new study on email 
user names and anonymity. The call for participants and information 
on the study is below. I would also like to ask you to forward our 
call for participants to other lists, groups, or individuals that you 
think might be appropriate. We are trying to get a sample of 
world-wide English speakers to complete our Web survey, and so the 
international and interdisciplinary nature of AOIR made this list the 
perfect place to start our publicity.

Thank you very much for your help and interest, and please feel free 
to contact me if you have any questions.

P.S. I'd also love to get any feedback on the design and layout of the survey

You are invited to participate in an online study of email addresses. 
The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding into how people 
personalize their email addresses, manage multiple email 
addresses/accounts, and experience anonymity when using these 
addresses. We would like to invite all English-speaking email users 
age 18 and over worldwide to complete our survey, and we eventually 
hope to have 400-500 respondents globally.

This survey is being conducted by researchers at the University of 
Texas at Austin and has been approved by the Institutional Review 
Board for the Protection of Human Subjects, Clarke A. Burnham, Ph.D., 
Chair. Questions about this research may be directed to the chair at: 
The University of Texas at Austin, Office of Research Support & 
Compliance, P.O. Box 7426, Austin, TX, 78713.

If you choose to participate it will take approximately 10 - 30 
minutes to complete the survey depending on the number of email 
addresses you have. All of your answers will be kept confidential by 
the researchers. The information we collect will be used for academic 
research purposes only and will not be used by or sold to any 
commercial entities.

To take the survey, please go to: 

Thank your for your time and participation, and please feel free to 
forward this URL to any other individuals or groups you think may be 
interested. You should also feel free to contact us if you have any 
other questions about this project.
