I just received this survey request but can't figure out who "Publishing Research Group" is. The survey is benign but it appears they're f(ph)ishing for authors. Author friends: have any of you gotten this?
We are inviting you to take one of our series of surveys concerning the book publishing industry (see the 'Enter Survey Here' button below). The survey requires 4-5 minutes of your time. All those (and only those) that complete the survey will receive a complete statistical reporting of the results of the survey (typically about 2 weeks after we distribute the invitations to take the survey).
This survey is part of a series of surveys being conducted, directed at various sub-groups of authors and publishers, in both the self-publishing and traditional publishing areas. You can read here a clear explanation of the purpose, usage and privacy of the survey.
At all times, the privacy of survey participants will be protected.
I would like to thank you in advance for your investment of time with us.
We hope you enjoyed receiving this email, but if you no longer wish to receive our emails please click here.
