Provide Input – International Research

The National Foreign Language Center at the University of Maryland (NFLC-UMD) is working on a project to document the ways in which US university researchers incorporate research from other countries into their work. Do they only draw on work published in English in the top journals, or do they leverage international press releases, news reports, industry bulletins, or other sources to stay abreast of advances in other countries? University of Illinois faculty are invited to take a 3-minute survey that addresses these questions. Faculty can to complete the survey even if they don’t access research in other languages.
