Europe Economics and the Institute for Information Law of the University of Amsterdam are undertaking a study on the remuneration of writers, journalists, authors of publications in scientific/academic journals, translators, photographers, illustrators and designers (collectively referred to as authors) for the European Commission.

As set out in our earlier emails and discussion, part of our approach is to conduct an online survey of relevant authors. The results of this study are likely to influence the legislative framework and EC policies that govern the remuneration of authors and this survey gives your members the chance to contribute to the research.

Please communicate to your members that the survey should only take 10-15 minutes to complete, and that the responses are anonymous (neither Europe Economics, the Institute for Information Law of the University of Amsterdam nor DG Internal Market will be able to identify the individuals that have responded).

In addition the surveyors will treat the individual responses collected as confidential and they will not be shared with any third parties. Only aggregated data will be used in our report.

The closing date for this is 30/05/2015.

The questionnaires are in different languages.
