Abstract

The work of the scientist whether he or she is from the physical or natural scientific community or from the social science community is not materially different. The processes are much the same. The outcome required which is to add something of value to the body of theoretical knowledge is exactly the same. This paper uses the dialectic to highlight the core activities of the scientist.

Abstract

In this paper we present a personal reflection on the implementation of an online survey, highlighting the tradeoffs between the potential benefits and pitfalls. It is argued that casting your net out too wide, in a bid to maximise responses can result ultimately in a low response rate. We evaluate the experience of completing an online survey from the perspective of both the researcher and the respondent to outline the dynamics of the completion and submission process. Finally, in a bid to assist those interested, a review of some of the online survey tools is presented.

 

Keywords: Questionnaires, Surveys, Research Design, Research Process, Design and Implementation, Stakeholder Perspectives
