Dear Professional,

This this to share with you, what I feel, when I get a questionnaire to furnish the information regarding Infrastructures and Library Services along with an another set of a questionnaire which seeks the information on user satisfaction from the users. Information asked is too vast to provide and totally unstructured in nature. The topic is something else, questions are something else. I really get confused, when I get it. I need to know the answers of few questions please share your views; 

What the research is going to bring as an outcome? what will be the impact of the study, will that be able to make changes in existing infrastructures, circumstances? What researcher will do further, on behalf of research outcomes? 

These questions are straight, supportive questions you may please raise from your end.

Thank you.

Certainly you are right,many time we found uncorrelated questions are putting in questionnaire there Moto is different from given topic why they asked and what is purpose of going i as per me they dont understand his own questions. Today's we found redimate questionnaire is also available in market and many students are just modify and pur rest of information as it's . So please avoid such activity and just consult his/her supervisor and make it his research meaningful.

T

Ture. Its considerable point must be looking after while designing a questionnaire.

Thank you. 

Dear Sri Munesh Kumar,

Thanks for your post and addressing a very practical yet quite perturbing issue!
Many questionnaires are crammed with so irrelevant items that respondents often avoid attending to them. Research idea of the senders often results getting very poor response rates.

I remember of a questionnaire entitled CITATION STUDY (which was basically a study of merely referencing pattern!!)had questions like number of ACs in the Library and their capacity!!

As I personally feel, the reasons lie on the ideology to "scoring through short-cut" I am sorry to say that not only the students but also a fairly large number of teachers also believe in this ideology and I have great doubt whether these teachers have indulged into this habit from their own student days.

As I recall, in the editorial of LIS Links Newsletter this practice of copy paste was mentioned and their ill-effects were also discussed. Never-the-less, some tit-bits about devising trim and effective questionnaires were also discussed.

Sometimes, I wonder whether they have seriously analyzed the requirements of their research topics. But I am almost certain that they have very limited exposure to Research Methodology.

Sincerely,

Siddhartha S. Ray

Thank you, Sir.

for the valuable response and knowledge. 

A Researcher must take care of the needs of research and scope of the study. Sometimes it feels bad to not respond the questions followed by a sense of injustice; but what to do?

Sir, as you have mentioned that questions are being filled without any logic and relevance. I was filling a questionnaire relating to a study on e-infrastructures in libraries, where the age of the Librarian was asked to fill (may be a range of data could be considerable). What is the relation of age and infrastructures in the system? I can't define it as being a respondent. Research themselves must be adequate sensible to judge the requirement and scope of their Ph.D. work. Teacher and guides must be approached before posting a questionnaire for getting data. 

Researcher themselves must have the adequate sense to firm a judgment on requirement side and limit the scopes of the Ph.D. work. Teacher and guides must be approached before posting a questionnaire for getting data. Those who fill difficulties they must contact with the other professional under the cooperation. 

Thank you.

Dear Sri Munesh Kumar,

Thanks for your post.

Indeed it seems bad not to respond to fellow professionals' requirements.

The alternative way remains is to attend only those portions which you feel relevant.

Generally, in most cases we come across a space provided for comments/ suggestions at the end of the questionnaires. Respondents can certainly make "good use" of the space with requisite comments.

Frankly speaking, sometimes it becomes strenuous to attend 16 page questionnaire with repetitive &/or irrelevant questions.

I sincerely believe that teachers have an ethical role to guide the students in developing the questionnaires so that they get good response.

Sincerely,

Siddhartha S. Ray

Thank you, sir for your value time and response. Yes Sir, I'll make sure to post the relevant views in the remarks column (if required). 

Thank you. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
