Jul 26 2011
Working Title of Book: Online Panel Research: An Interdisciplinary Approach
Publisher: Wiley, in their Survey Methodology series
Editors: Mario Callegaro, Reg Baker, Jelke Bethlehem, Anja S. Göritz, Jon A. Krosnick and Paul J. Lavrakas
We invite public and commercial sector researchers to submit proposals for chapters in an edited volume. The editors encourage comparative empirical studies that demonstrate differences or similarities in results across methods. The primary purpose of the book is to provide new empirical evidence evaluating all sources of potential error in online panel measurements, to compare such errors to errors in parallel data collected by other methods, and to identify methods for minimizing error.
A subset of illustrative possible topics include:
- Sampling & Coverage Errors: Probability and Nonprobability methods, including sample representativeness and other aspects of external validity
- Online Panel recruitment methods and Nonresponse
- Panel Maintenance and Attrition
- Online Sample Selection and Adjustment Techniques
- Measurement Errors in Online Research, including satisficing, missing data, imputation, respondent burden, and other measurement error topics
- Interactions among various sources of Survey Errors in online panel research
- Use of online panels where representativeness is not a goal
- Rare/low incidence population studies
A goal of the book is to be as interdisciplinary as possible, so a wide array of other topics is within the scope of the book.
The editors invite potential authors to submit a 4-6 page double-spaced chapter proposal with the following:
1. Detailed description of the chapter content
2. Tentative outline of chapter
3. Description of the dataset(s) that will provide the foundation of what is reported in the chapter
4. Up to five key references
The proposal should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
