Al-Fanar Media is asking researchers in the Middle East and Arab world to take a new survey to help show support for those doing research at universities and colleges worldwide. 
The tweet reads, "If you're a researcher in the region please fill out this survey. If not please forward it to colleagues who are. The goal is to help us produce a series of in-depth articles that we hope will assist policymakers in efforts to support researchers."


The first question asks the researchers the obstacles one must overcome to do good research. There are nine obstacles that the researchers want one to rank from 1 being the most important to 9 being least important. The obstacles range from lack of funding to a lack of academic freedom.

The survey is in Arabic and English.
