The state of structure, 2011

Happy New Year!

In early 2009, we did a rather extensive survey on structured authoring. We asked about plans to implement structured authoring, existing implementations, biggest mistakes, and the like.

It’s time to update the numbers and see what has changed in the past two years.
So, please take a few minutes to fill out our structured authoring survey. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes and will be open until the end of February. Two lucky participants will each win a $50 gift certificate from

We will analyze the responses and publish the results in April. The results will be free for survey participants.

Please participate! There is very little research available on this topic. Your input will provide important information about the use of structured authoring in technical communication.

Update (January 4, 2011): In addition to participating, please help us get the word out by letting others know about this survey.
