The Canadian data for the APIKS study was collected via an online survey between October 24, 2017 and June 30, 2018. The 51-item survey was emailed to professors at 64 publically-funded universities, including universities located in all of Canada’s 10 provinces. A total of 45,437 invitation emails were sent out to professors in Canada, 31,728 of whom were eligible to complete the survey. (At several universities, the survey invitation was sent via the internal faculty email which contained librarians or part-time faculty.)
The survey was offered in both French (n=725) and English (n=2243). A total of 2968 surveys were valid, a response rate of 9.4% (see Table 1).
