Survey Instruments in IS

Peter Newsted, Sid Huff & Malcolm Munro

Welcome to the MISQ Discovery archival version of the "Survey Instruments in Information Systems (IS)" repository. The goal of this site is to provide researchers with actual survey instruments used in IS -- either in full text or via links to the appropriate citations. Although this version remains unchanged since its acceptance in November of 1998, a "living version" may still be being maintained by the authors.

As a significant part of research in IS is done with survey instruments, the IS research community will benefit from an easily accessible source of information about survey methods and especially from a repository of instruments. Our objective is to provide IS researchers and students with a number of these instruments (subject to copyright considerations) along with introductory information on the survey process. The repository is intended to help researchers get started with the survey methodology, while also providing a convenient resource for experienced survey researchers. Pointers to a variety of related sites are included. Links which are specifically part of this site are identified with the MISQ Discovery "quill pen" logo to the right. The ISWorld disclaimer is relevant here. Your comments to the authors are encouraged and your suggestions may be incorporated into the living version.

Note that italicized links (such as "quill pen logo" above) are hot links to small windows with additional information such as a definition of a term or material commonly found in a footnote. Your browser should have Java Script enabled to view them. Be sure you only click them ONCE, as a second click will return to the main browser window, and likely eliminate your view of the small window before it can be read.
