Journal scores highly in survey

Case studies, technical articles and CPD rated high

A recent readership survey has revealed strong ongoing support for CIBSE Journal. More than 90% of respondents rated the Journal as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.

When asked to rate the technical coverage, 87% rated it as excellent or good. Case studies, technical articles and CPD rated highest when asked to rate different sections, however, all sections rated highly.

There was also feedback on how long people spend reading each edition: 42% said 30-60 minutes with 26% taking more than an hour over the monthly magazine, 37% of respondents said they accessed the Journal online, with 23% reading both the online and print edition, and 39% reading the print edition.

The website received positive feedback, with 78% rating it as either excellent or good, while 93% of those who accessed CIBSE Journal webinars rated them as interesting/informative.

The Journal podcast series was also positively reviewed with 88% of those who had listened rating them as interesting/informative. A large number of respondents were not aware or had not listened to them, so we will be doing more to promote these to a wider audience.

Thank you to the 450 people who responded to the reader survey in October.
