Bronwyn Clarke, down under at the University of New England in Australia, is doing her Ph.D. research on online romance communities. She has a survey for all of us to take, and has a blog that will discuss her research and (I assume) invite us all to participate those discussions.
As far as I can tell (and I've never been trained in any of this), it's a great survey. Short, sweet, but informative. I'm very much looking forward to her blog as well!
So, if you pop over here and read this, pop over to The Survey and contribute to romance-positive research!
