Abstract:

For my doctoral dissertation, I collected data using survey research, which may sound like an easy task, but the process can have many challenges. I began collecting data with the use of a mailed questionnaire. However, after having experienced a poor return rate, I decided to use a self-completion questionnaire that I would administer face to face. The acceptable number of surveys collected for a dissertation is not necessarily the acceptable number of surveys required for publishing the findings in a peer-reviewed journal. Therefore, after collecting the data for my dissertation, I collected additional data 12 years later using a self-completion questionnaire and encountered additional challenges. Some of the challenges included obtaining institutional review board approval, locating and contacting the authorized people/decision makers, the logistics of collecting the data, protecting the confidentiality of the data, missing survey information, and trying to make meaning of all the data. Self-completion questionnaires have many challenges; however, they are a useful research technique that can be used to gather reliable and useful data.
