Abstract E-mail has the potential to serve as one more mechanism to collect data. The purpose of this study as to assess the appropriate number of follow-ups needed to obtain maximal response rate when sending an e-mail survey. The results revealed that follow-up memos will approximately double the response rate. Yet, at best, e-mail will only provide a researcher with an adequate response rate. Recommendations include to keep surveys short and noninvasive, to allow for quick and easy responses, and to plan sending one to two follow-up memos.
