Hello list members. I am emailing to resend the survey on Impostor Phenomenon. Sadly, due to a technological issue I’ve lost all the data from the previous survey. If you are in a management or administrative role in your institution please follow the link to the survey, https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2V5WX8K .

My original email is below and offers more explanation.

Thank you for your time and patience.

This is your invitation to participate in an online survey regarding Impostor Phenomenon among managers and administrators in academic libraries.

Imposter Phenomenon (IP), also known as Imposter Syndrome, has been a popular topic in higher education for over 30 years.  The idea comes from two psychologists, Dr. Pauline Rose Clance and Dr. Suzanne Ament Imes, both of whom noticed reoccurring anxieties among successful women/men in managerial roles.
The idea behind IP is that no matter how hard one works, or how successful one becomes, the individual feels like a fraud. At any moment they will be “found out” by supervisors that they are not as “good”, “intelligent”, or “successful” as they appear to be. They feel as if their success was by chance or by luck and not from their own abilities.

There is no known or expected risk, threat, or harm to either potential project participants or project participants or others.  The short survey should take approximately 15-25 minutes to complete. A portion of this survey contains the Clance Impostor Phenomenon Scale (CIPS) with permission of the author (see permission statement below). No data is saved until the participant submits the full survey. You are asked to voluntarily provide specific information to this web site. You may skip any question, or stop participating at any time. The information collected will be used for the stated purposes of this research project only and will not be provided to any other party for any other reason at any time except and only if required by law. You should be aware that although the information you provide is anonymous, it is transmitted in a non-secure manner. There is a remote chance that skilled, knowledgeable persons unaffiliated with this research project could track the information you provide to the IP address of the computer from which you send it. However, your personal identity cannot be determined.

Responses are anonymous and data will be reported without any identifying characteristics. The results from this survey will be presented at conferences and disseminated in other research articles. If you have any questions please contact, Elizabeth Martin, Head of Professional Programs, Grand Valley State University, martelia at gvsu.edu<mailto:martelia at gvsu.edu>
