Paulus, Trena M.; Pope, Elizabeth M.; Woolf, Nicholas; Silver, Christina – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Few studies have explored approaches to teaching qualitative data analysis software (QDAS). As more researchers rely on self-teaching, more research into best practices for developing QDAS expertise is warranted. In this paper, we report our experience using the Five-Level QDA® method to guide the design of an introductory ATLAS.ti workshop. By…

Gummer, Tobias; Roßmann, Joss – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Propensity score weighting often is used to correct for attrition biases in panel surveys. While methodological literature exists on the logic of propensity score weighting and its practical applications, an in-depth discussion is lacking on the effects of using this weighting to correct for attrition biases in attitudinal, behavioral, and…

Hoddy, Eric T. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Whilst critical realism (CR) is becoming recognised as a significant meta-theory for the social sciences, there is little guidance on how to produce research which is consistent with its ontological and epistemological assumptions. This article contributes to an emerging discussion about how CR can be applied, drawing on an example of a…

Höhne, Jan Karem – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
In social research, the use of agree/disagree (A/D) questions is a popular method for measuring attitudes. Research has shown that A/D questions require complex cognitive processing and are susceptible to response bias. Thus, some researchers recommend the use of item-specific (IS) questions. This study examines the processing of A/D and IS…

Jenner, Brandy M.; Myers, Kit C. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
While qualitative researchers increasingly accept online video interviews as a reliable method, many maintain concerns about rapport and data quality. Drawing on two separate interview projects conducted in private in-person settings, public in-person settings, and privately via Skype, we compare interview contexts with regard to rapport,…

Silber, Henning; Danner, Daniel; Rammstedt, Beatrice – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This study aims to assess whether respondent inattentiveness causes systematic and unsystematic measurement error that influences survey data quality. To determine the impact of (in)attentiveness on the reliability and validity of target measures, we compared respondents from a German online survey (N = 5205) who had passed two attention checks…

Terentev, Evgeniy; Maloshonok, Natalia – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This paper aims to explore the response-order effects for rating questions presented in item-by-item and grid formats. It was hypothesized that the primacy effect occurs for both formats of questions, and that this effect is dependent on age, education, and type of device used for responding to questions. Two randomized experiments were conducted…

Gummer, Tobias; Blumenberg, Manuela S.; Roßmann, Joss – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
From the perspective of study management, research is surprisingly lacking on two of the major challenges for planning and performing content analysis: determining the sample size (i.e. number of objects to code) and the required number of coders to hire. The optimization of both of these numbers will ultimately determine how efficiently available…

Mason, Robert; Huff, Kyle – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This article explores the comparability of assessment tools under different format conditions. Prior studies have not considered the interaction of format and device on time to complete an assessment and have instead treated each of them separately with conflicting results. This study assesses, by linear regressions using web-based data, the…

Hirschhorn, Fabio – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
The paper outlines the author's experience employing the Delphi method, using as an example a particular application of the Delphi in the field of public transport research. Attention is given to aspects such as the choice of method, selection of experts, design of questionnaires, interaction between survey coordinator and participants, and also…

Muddiman, Esther; Lyttleton-Smith, Jen; Moles, Kate – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
The study of marginalia has not been widely discussed in social sciences research and occupies a marginal space in terms of methodological legitimacy. We highlight the value of paying attention to the ways in which participants "speak back" to the researcher. This paper draws on marginalia found in surveys written or drawn by young…

Kruger, Louis J.; Rodgers, Rachel F.; Long, Stephanie J.; Lowy, Alice S. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Individual interviews have traditionally been an important method of data collection in multiple disciplines, including psychology. However, research comparing individual interviews with focus groups has generated mixed results regarding which method is more effective in investigating sensitive topics. The purpose of the present study was to…

Mey, Erik; van Hoven, Bettina – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Participatory research actively engages participants in some or all stages of the research process -- from deciding on scope and problem statement to actively collecting data to disseminating results and effecting change. Considering the shifting roles of participants and researchers in participatory ageing research, to the academic, participatory…

Hoekstra, R.; Vugteveen, J.; Warrens, M. J.; Kruyen, P. M. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Cronbach's alpha is the most frequently used measure to investigate the reliability of measurement instruments. Despite its frequent use, many warn for misinterpretations of alpha. These claims about regular misunderstandings, however, are not based on empirical data. To understand how common such beliefs are, we conducted a survey study to test…

Höhne, Jan Karem; Schlosser, Stephan – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Participation in web surveys via smartphones increased continuously in recent years. The reasons for this increase are a growing proportion of smartphone owners and an increase in mobile Internet access. However, research has shown that smartphone respondents are frequently distracted and/or multitasking, which might affect completion and response…
