Dear Mendeley user,

The iRiS research group at University of Pittsburgh is conducting a study to learn how researchers use academic social networking sites. Please find the following link to the questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about your attitudes toward your usages of Mendeley. We will only analyze your answers in aggregation, and will not release them to others. This study has been approved by the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Board (# PRO12090367).

Sincerely,

Daqing He, PhD

The idea is about translating an approach that has worked in food, (ie slow food) to fashion (slow fashion) . I need to develop the rationale and would like to put my hands on the concept. Thank you!
