Thank you for taking the time to respond to the 2022 OpenNews Survey!
The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete.
Who should fill out this survey?
  • People who work at the intersection of journalism and technology
  • People who have participated in or have heard about OpenNews activities
  • People who are interested in work that supports equity and inclusion in journalism
This survey builds on prior OpenNews research commissioned in 2016 and 2017 (the News Nerd Census) - which produced a snapshot of perspectives on the field of journalism, as well as an anonymized data set that journalists and technologists found useful. This year's survey is designed to gather new data on how the field of journalism is evolving, as well as who makes up the news nerd community and other groups served by OpenNews. We are also interested in learning what makes the OpenNews community valuable, and where there is the greatest potential for OpenNews to make an impact.   

The survey has three sections:
  1. About you and your work
  2. Your experience with OpenNews
  3. Your priorities for the future
All responses will be confidential. At the end of the survey you will have the option to provide contact information to be included in a drawing for one of three $100 gift cards to a food/delivery service of your choice. Your contact information for the drawing will not be linked to your survey response.

Summary results and shareable, de-identified portions of the full results data will be shared back with the OpenNews community this fall. If you have any questions, please email our survey partners Network Impact at:
