Abstract The article reports that given the high cost of commercial survey applications and services, it is no surprise that low and no-cost open-source alternatives have emerged for performing surveys using the Web. These options range from open-source tools that provide everything from basic surveys to complex questionnaires to authoring tools that allow sites to build their own survey applications. The open-source product called phpESP (php Easy Survey Package) is an effective Web-based survey application for creating complex surveys, viewing results in real time and performing advanced analysis. phpESP is based on the PHP scripting language, and we've used it running both on Linux and Windows. Completed surveys can be delivered as stand-alone Web pages or embedded in existing Web pages by incorporating a small amount of PHP code. phpESP is the only open-source application that addresses complex enterprise survey needs, but companies that have simpler needs can turn to many other open-source options. For example, portal and content management applications such as PHP-Nuke and Plone have the ability to carry out basic Web surveys and questionnaires.
