Members of CSI published an article in the scientific journal Metodološki zvezki

Miha Matjašič, Vasja Vehovar, PhD and Katja Lozar Manfreda, PhD members of the Centre for the Social Informatics (CSI) at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences, published an article entitled »Web Survey Paradata on Response Time Outliers: A Systematic Literature Review« in the scientific journal Metodološki zvezki.

The article addresses the issues related to capturing and processing response time paradata – data on the process of answering the survey questionnaire that researchers have been intensively using in the past two decades to evaluate and improve survey instruments as well as to understand the survey response process. This article focuses on approaches for identifying and processing response time and response time outliers. It presents a systematic overview of scientific papers on response time  and response time outliers in web surveys. The results show that despite the great potential of response time paradata and the considerable body of existing research a large gap remains in understanding the true potential of response time paradata. This is mostly due to lacking deeper insights into the links between response time paradata and response quality of respondents.

The whole article is available on the website Metodološki zvezki.
