Iconresearch.net

I have founded this website as a part of my doctoral studies at Aalto University. It serves as a platform for surveys that will be used to collect data related to the research questions. I will also publish all the results of the surveys through this site. You can find a brief summary of my research plan here.

Don't be surprised if the page looks like it's under construction, because it is. My policy with this project is, to publish early and often and build the site and its content as I go.

According to Charles Sanders Peirce all signs can be classified into icons, symbols and indexes based on the signs relation to the referent. In this system an icon is limited to a representation that resembles its object. An index carries an actual connection to its object, such as a sign of a telephone on the door of a phone booth. A symbol in contrast has no visual connection to its object. It is an abstract sign that can only be understood through learning its meaning. (Rayan & Hubner, 2006)
