I would greatly appreciate your involvement in a study which I believe will be beneficial to our community, in particular supporting the further development of SPARQL and related languages.

The study investigates how people create models in RDF* and queries in SPARQL*.  As some of you will be aware, RDF* and SPARQL* are extension to RDF and SPARQL designed by Olaf Hartig (https://blog.liu.se/olafhartig<https://blog.liu.se/olafhartig/>) to enable reification, and the querying of reified statements.

The results of the study will be published in the research literature; all data will be anonymised.

The study consists of 15 questions relating to RDF* and SPARQL*, and will take between 30 minutes and one hour.  Some of the questions depend purely on the features of RDF and SPARQL, as defined by the W3C.  Other questions make use of the extended features in RDF* and SPARQL*.  Whilst many of you will, I am sure, be very familiar with RDF and SPARQL, I provide an information 'handout' which describes everything you need to know to complete the study.  In particular, the last page of the handout lists everything you need in compact form.

The study questionnaire is available at https://spice.kmi.open.ac.uk/pwsparql/sparql.  The handout is attached to this email.

The study is available for approximately two weeks, i.e. until Wednesdy 8th July.

The study has been reviewed by, and received a favourable opinion from, The Open University Human Research Ethics Committee, reference HREC/3568.

Many thanks.
