      I saw a post to submit data to ISBSG. When I followed the link I came to a SurveyMonkey survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/COSMIC-DCQ.
      Is this okay to use. It looks genuine, but is the data I submit safe when I use this survey? Or is this a clever hoax?

      Ian,

      I can understand your concern. First of all I can confirm this is a genuine request from ISBSG and COSMIC to submit project data. ISBSG created this survey to make it as easy as possible to submit your data to ISBSG. Since we have no control over SurveyMonkey we cannot fully guarantee the safety of your data, although the chance of your data being used for unwanted purposes is very limited, since it would hurt the reputation of SurveyMonkey.

      When you have concerns about the safety of your data, you can always use the full ISBSG questionaire, available from http://isbsg.org/data-collection-questionnaires/.

      I hope this answers your questions.

      Regards, Frank

      Hi Frank,

      That’s a quick response! Thanks. I will try a straightforward project first and then consider whether we’ll do strategic projects via the survey or via the ISBSG form. I guess the form requires more information?

      Regards.

      I am waiting at the airport for my flight to Mexico for the http://cnmes.mx conference, so I saw your question popping up.

      Regards, Frank
