Paid study on Russian Writing Styles (University of Maryland)

The University of Maryland, College Park is seeking native and non-native (advanced) speakers of Russian to participate in an ongoing paid study on the diversity of writing styles around the globe. This study is approved by the internal review board (IRB) of the University of Maryland, College Park, and our team hopes that the documents we collect will help provide some insight into how individual writing styles differ by region and document type.

Participants in this study will be asked to author original writing samples for several different genres. Participation is entirely online, and compensation will be provided upon proper completion of study participation tasks. There is also a corresponding study in English. Participants who are bilingual are welcome to complete either or both the Russian and English versions of our study.
