Property Graph Study

Cypher handout.txt (17.4 KB)

I would greatly appreciate your involvement in a study which I believe will be beneficial to our community, in particular supporting the further development of graph query languages.

The study investigates how people create models and queries in property graphs. Specifically, I am using the Cypher language (Cypher Query Language - Developer Guides). However, the study is concerned with the general principles of using property graphs, rather than specific features of Cypher.

The results of the study will be published in the research literature; all data will be anonymised.

The study consists of 15 questions, and will take between 30 minutes and one hour. Whilst many of you will, I am sure, be very familiar with Cypher or a similar property graph query language, I provide an information 'handout' which describes everything you need to know to complete the study. In particular, the last page of the handout lists everything you need in compact form.

The study questionnaire is available at The handout is attached to this email.

The study is available for approximately two weeks, i.e. until Wednesday 8th July.

The study has been reviewed by, and received a favourable opinion from, The Open University Human Research Ethics Committee, reference HREC/3568.

Many thanks.

That was kind of interesting, and I think I even learned something. :) Good luck with it!

The property graph study will be available until the end of Wednesday (British time). I have had a number of contributions already, but would appreciate some more. Paul Warren
