We welcome experts in science and technology-related fields, especially PhDs and those with more than three years of business or research experience. The survey topics cover a wide range of fields, including Chemicals/Materials, Automotive, Electronics, Machinery, Environment, Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare, Food, etc. This diversity allows individuals from any company or organization in any industry to leverage their past and present work experience and knowledge. Upon registration, the OI Council will conduct a brief screening and identity verification. Please note that registration may be declined if it is deemed difficult to match you to a survey.
It depends on your expertise and the topics of our surveys. In general, we always have a variety of themes and topics for our surveys. You may receive survey notifications as often as three times a week. If you do not receive surveys often, you can edit your Expertise Tag, which is used to match you to surveys. Expertise Tags can also be based on your previous jobs and academic background.
Rewards for surveys and follow-ups (additional text-based communication after surveys) are given as OIC points. The OIC points can be exchanged for a variety of gift certificates depending on your country of residence.
