I would greatly appreciate your involvement in a study which I believe will be beneficial to our community, in particular supporting the further development of graph query languages.  

The study investigates how people create models and queries in property graphs.  Specifically, I am using the Cypher language (  However, the study is concerned with the general principles of using property graphs, rather than specific features of Cypher.  

The results of the study will be published in the research literature; all data will be anonymised.  

The study consists of 15 questions, and will take between 30 minutes and one hour.  Whilst many of you will, I am sure, be very familiar with Cypher or a similar property graph query language, I provide an information 'handout' which describes everything you need to know to complete the study.  In particular, the last page of the handout lists everything you need in compact form.

The study questionnaire is available at  The handout is attached to this email.

The study is available for approximately two weeks, i.e. until Wednesday 8th July.  

The study has been reviewed by, and received a favourable opinion from, The Open University Human Research Ethics Committee, reference HREC/3568.

Many thanks.

Apologies for reposting, but I would appreciate the help of anyone in the forum interested in Property Graphs.  I have had some interesting responses to my study, but need some more to obtain statistically significant results.  I am extending the study period until the end of next Saturday (11th).  Although the study uses a subset of Cypher, there is no need to be a Cypher expert to participate.  The handout explains all you need to know.
