This section lists blogs about web survey methodology. They are structured in four groups according to where they are coming from:
- Experts: These are professionals, dedicated to the issues of survey methodology and marketing who (sometimes) also reflect on topics related to web survey methodology;
- Associations and media: We talk here about organizations with a mission to reflect/discuss topics objectively; they are not directly involved neither in selling software or methodology nor into the supply of survey research services.
- Software vendors:According to recent WebSM study on web survey software, more than 100 vendors also produce their blog. Of course, this is basically an element of their marketing/PR/sales strategy, however, for being readable to broader audience they must provide interesting and relevant stuff - and often they do. This is also the first place to learn about interesting new features.
- Survey research organizations: We have here predominantly market research companies doing empirical research, but also organization from public and nonprofit sector. They all have a lot to say about web survey methodology, particularly about its nesting into the research and into survey industry. Similar to software vendors they write blogs predominantly for promoting their organization and their core activity, but doing this they do provide certain added value also to readers interested in web survey methodology.
