Comparative Response to a Survey Executed by Post, E-mail, & Web Form

Thought I would post this below, since it's usefull for people conducting (or thinking of) surveys via internet with also a good references' section, giving a very good starting point. If research isues interest you, you may also like to have a look in The use of English questionnaires in cross-national research, Qualitative Research Bibliography, Digital information in the Information Research field, and Conducting Research Surveys via E-mail and the Web.



Gi Woong Yun & Craig W. Trumbo (2000).Comparative Response to a Survey Executed by Post, E-mail, & Web Form. Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, vol.6 (1):
"Recent developments in communication technologies have created alternative survey methods through e-mail and Web sites. Both methods use electronic text communication, require fewer resources, and provide faster responses than traditional paper and pencil methods. However, new survey methodologies also generate problems involving sampling, response consistency and participant motivation. Empirical studies need to be done to address these issues as researchers implement electronic survey methods."
