Academic spending
We probably all spend a bit of money on our jobs from time to time - not claiming back for food whilst travelling, or treating ourselves to a laptop that we know will be used primarily for work...

This survey is an informal way of looking at what people will spend their own money on whilst working in an academic role. It's not a scientific survey and doesn't have any validity. Generic answers might be used in an article on scientistsarehumans.com - nothing which identifies an individual or an institution will be published though.

We're working on an article now based on data collected up until 10th Sep. There may be a followup article based around the response to that so we are leaving the form up with a few additional questions.
