The Center for Open Science (COS), with support from the Sloan Foundation, will soon be deploying a survey to begin quantifying impressions of preprints, how much folks know about them, how likely they are to use them, and various aspects of trust in preprint repositories and preprints themselves. The survey will be hosted online and COS is looking for help in promoting the survey across multiple disciplines. I volunteered to help promote via the EarthArXiv mailing list and social media channels.
