BOSR specializes in survey methodology, a field with broad real-world impacts in academia, government, marketing, public policy, public health, program evaluation, and nonprofit and for-profit enterprises around the world.

BOSR has provided research assistance to University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty, departments, administrative units and students since 1964. Operating as a "one-stop research shop" in Oldfather Hall, BOSR develops and manages mail, web, telephone and in-person surveys as well as focus groups. Whether you are a researcher looking to find out more about the services we provide, or a study participant wanting to know more about the surveys we are conducting, we invite you to learn more about our projects, staff and services.

“Working with BOSR has been a true pleasure. They have been instrumental in keeping our project on track and moving forward. Not only are they highly competent, responsive, and thorough, but each individual we have worked with has been kind, helpful, and creative in problem solving. BOSR has been instrumental in our project's success.”

Eileen Hebets, UNL Professor of Biological Sciences

“Kim and her team are great to work with. They are responsive and willing to be part of brainstorming discussions which is very helpful. They help from ideation to collection, analysis and final reports. They have adapted their reporting templates to serve our funder’s requests/templates (i.e., USDA) for easier reporting. It really feels like a collaborative project with them; they are willing and able to learn about the project so they can better serve our needs.”
