    Coffee Preference Research

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone, thank you for having me in the group.

    I'm hoping its acceptable for me to post a short survey here. I'm a research student currently on a short project to understand the psychology behind coffee choice and consumption.

    The focus of the research is to understand what factors help us determine our coffee choice and if instant coffee is an option. I hope that you are willing to help me with my research.

    Hi

    Looks risky to follow that link. It seems to go to Facebook and then you get a message it's leaving Facebook. I would not click on a link like that. You can't tell exactly beforehand where its going to or what is likely to be loaded. Sorry Mephalla but to do research you need to use more professional survey platforms that users can trust.

    PS. Using Lynx it appears to go to a Google Docs spreadsheet so prob OK. But I can't tell what University of educational institution it's for nor details of the user requesting the data.

    And it's bad manners to show up to a forum and post a survey without getting permission first

    Many thanks in advance.

    Do you have 'ethics approval' for your study? And a participant info sheet? Best to negotiate these things in advance.

    Hi Mephalla

    Here is some helpful info. Many Unis have courses where students do surveys as part of their course. The students advertise in various places, both online in forums and in printed leaflets around the uni. They state what Uni they are from and the course they are doing, describe how the data relates to their course and how it will be useful. They provide a link to where you can see the ethics information, how the data will be collected and stored and how will have access to it, including what happens to the data after the course finishes. That link needs to be able to be read prior to doing the survey. In my Uni they often use "Survey Monkey" and less often Google Docs. They do not use Facebook.

    Finally as has been posted by others here, check with the owner of this forum as it's polite to ask permission first.

    Best wishes with your survey.
