Jerke, Julia; Johann, David; Rauhut, Heiko; Thomas, Kathrin; Velicu, Antonia – Field Methods, 2022
This research analyzes the effectiveness of the list experiment and crosswise model in measuring self-plagiarism and data manipulation. Both methods were implemented in a large-scale survey of academics on social norms and academic misconduct. As the results lend little confidence about the effectiveness of the methods, researchers are best…

West, Brady T.; Axinn, William G.; Couper, Mick P.; Gatny, Heather; Schroeder, Heather – Field Methods, 2022
Event history calendars (EHCs) are frequently used in social measurement to capture important information about the time ordering of events in people's lives and enable inference about the relationships of the events with other outcomes of interest. To date, EHCs have primarily been designed for face-to-face or telephone survey interviewing, and…

Meehan, Katie; Ginart, Lourdes; Ormerod, Kerri Jean – Field Methods, 2022
This article presents design principles and practical steps for web-based Q methodology surveys. Drawing on the experience of two online Q studies, we discuss theoretical concerns, sort and survey design, software programs, and issues in researcher-participant engagement. We argue that opening Q methodology to online modes of data collection is…

Brenner, Philip S.; Buskirk, Trent D. – Field Methods, 2022
We tested a novel extension to mailed invitations to a web-push survey, using a postcard invitation to deliver a scratch-off giftcode incentive similar to an instant-win lottery ticket. Scratch-off postcards were included as one of five conditions in randomized survey experiment varying two mailing types (letter and postcard) and three incentive…

Foucault Welles, Brooke; Sun, Hanyu; Miller, Peter V. – Field Methods, 2022
We examine relationships between interviewers' nonverbal behaviors and adequate responding in face-to-face survey interviews. We videotaped professional interviewers administering face-to-face survey interviews and coded them for three interviewer nonverbal behaviors: smiling, nodding, and direct gaze. These nonverbal interviewer behaviors were…

Stone, Arthur A.; Walentynowicz, Marta; Schneider, Stefan; Junghaenel, Doerte U.; Broderick, Joan E.; Deaton, Angus – Field Methods, 2022
To ensure the accuracy of self-reported data, it is important to reduce potential sources of bias such as the unwanted influence of prior questions on subsequent questions, the so-called item context effect. This article attempts to replicate the finding that evaluative subjective well-being was affected by a preceding item, a question about the…

Verd, Joan Miquel; Barranco, Oriol; Lozares, Carlos – Field Methods, 2021
In this article, we present the benefits of blending the methodological characteristics of the focused ethnographic method (FEM) and case study research (CSR) for a study on auxiliary work processes in a hospital in Barcelona, Spain. We argue that incorporating CSR logic and principles in the FEM produces a better form of inquiry, as this…

Hsieh, Shu-Hui; Wa Lukusa, Martin Tshishimbi – Field Methods, 2021
In surveys, proportions of individuals self-reporting as bisexual and homosexual are likely to suffer from misreports or refusal to answer when directly questioned. For more reliable information, the randomized response technique is often used. Therefore, to reduce social desirability bias, a multi-level randomized response technique has been used…

Chin, Alycia; Couper, Mick P.; Beckett, Dustin – Field Methods, 2021
Longitudinal survey and experimental research is essential for understanding psychological and economic processes, but attrition is a concern. We examine attrition in a 2016 longitudinal randomized controlled trial of more than 13,000 prospective U.S. homeowners, in which participants were invited to up to seven online surveys delivered every two…

Marin, Alexandra; Dubash, Soli – Field Methods, 2021
As relationships change and people change the kinds of support they provide, name generators that collect information about ties that provide particular kinds of support at repeated points of time may not effectively capture ties that are active but whose roles have changed. This article shows that a significant minority of network members change…

Bimler, David; Uusküla, Mari – Field Methods, 2021
When informants from a given culture are asked to list items from a specified semantic domain, their lists provide two indicators of each term's prominence or salience: its frequency of appearance across lists and its mean position within the lists that include it. Smith et al. (1995), Sutrop (2001), and most recently Robbins et al. (2017) have…

Revilla, Melanie; Couper, Mick P.; Paura, Ezequiel; Ochoa, Carlos – Field Methods, 2021
Passive data from a tracking application (or "meter") installed on participants' devices to register the URLs visited have great potential for studying people's online activities. However, given privacy concerns, obtaining cooperation installing a meter can be difficult and lead to selection bias. Therefore, in this article, we address…

Previous studies suggest that refusals form the largest proportion of nonresponse for household surveys. As face-to-face household health surveys are uncommon in several countries, it might be advantageous for prospective surveys to preemptively tackle respondents' refusal to survey participation. Using contact history data from the Saudi National…

Price, Heather E.; Smith, Christian – Field Methods, 2021
To identify the dominant cultural models among parents transmitting faith to their children, we find few methodological guidelines to guide coding and analysis of semi-structured interviews. We thus developed a three-phase procedure for our research team. Phase-one follows Campbell et al. by unitizing on meanings rather than words/pages, including…

Passmore, Susan R.; Jamison, Amelia M.; Abdelwadoud, Moaz; Rogers, Taylor B.; Wiggan, Morgan; Mullins, Daniel C.; Thomas, Stephen B. – Field Methods, 2021
To explore the willingness to participate in genomics research among African Americans, we developed a technique specifically suited to a relaxed social setting. The "Qualitative Story Deck," (QSD) is a gamified, structured elicitation technique that allows for the spontaneous creation of scenarios with variable attributes. We used the…
