[Questionnaire] Requirements for an accredited and practice-oriented certification system for open source hardware

Hello everyone,

I’m writing my Master thesis, which is related to certification for open source hardware.
So there is a little questionnaire for that (only 9 questions), please help me~~~Thank you very much!!!

the Link is below:


Hi @Zack! :smiley:

I’ve had a quick look at the questionnaire and am curious about a few things:

  1. Can you tell us more about your research and where it’s done? I’m always keen to learn more about research on open source hardware/software. It would also help to know more about the background of your research.
  2. For this survey, does the accredition mean OSHWA certification or is it any general/theoretical OSH certification?
  3. A couple possible typos: The first “question” has just one option labelled “选项 1” and the last question for occupation seems to have mispelled “Other” and “Ohters”… :sweat_smile:

Ni! Hi @Zack, and welcome to GOSH! I believe this other thread will be of great interest to you:
