Surveys are a very common research method, with many positive features; they can be quick to run and a good way of collecting large amounts of data. However, good survey-based research has a number of important methodological features which can make a huge difference to the quality and meaning of the data. These features include the phrasing and order of the questions, the number and type of questions, the way in which the survey is distributed, to whom, and the way in which the data are analysed. These features are especially important in the field of academic integrity, where we often ask people about challenging behaviours. This webinar will share some simple best practices for the conduct of survey research, in a way designed to help people who want to run their own surveys and those who want to analyse existing survey-based data.
