Although micro-enterprises represent most of the enterprises across different sectors, they are excluded from official statistics on innovation activities. What we know about micro-enterprises is based on smaller quantitative and qualitative studies that are country- and sector-specific. To understand the innovation activities of Slovenian enterpri...

Research into cognitive aspects of survey response has indicated unfamiliar terms as one of the psycholinguistic determinants of question comprehensibility problems. In this paper the estimates of wording familiarity based on text corpora for the English and Slovenian languages were used to detect potentially incomprehensible wordings in two web su...

While the problem of vaccine hesitancy is not new, it has become more pronounced with the new COVID-19 vaccines and represents an obstacle to resolving the crisis. Even people who would usually trust vaccines and experts now prefer to wait for more information. A cross-sectional online survey was conducted in Slovenia in December 2020 to find out t...

Outdoor cultural heritage is exposed to several detrimental factors, so involving people in its care can greatly help in its preservation. We conducted four focus groups with participants recruited through a screening questionnaire to find ways of including travelers in a citizen science project by learning about how they interact with monuments th...

Abstract: Forestry will play an increasingly important role as a raw material contributor since climate change mitigation requires a shift from fossil-based materials to renewable bio-based materials. As consequence, an increase in wood demand is expected. Slovenia has a forest coverage of 58 % while almost half of Austria is covered by forest (48...

Forestry will play an increasingly important role as a raw material contributor since climate change mitigation requires a shift from fossil-based materials to renewable, bio-based materials. Consequently, an increase in wood demand is expected. Slovenia has a forest coverage of 59 % while almost half of Austria is covered by forest (43 %). In thes...

Research culture consists of the norms, activities, ethics and integrity that define the behaviour of researchers. Research culture has a profound influence on how Early Career Researchers (ECRs) develop during their research careers, present their work and interact with other researchers and the rest of society. The emerging Open Science era will...
Article
Full-text available
With the closing of the age-related gap in mobile phone uptake and the aging of the population, older adults have increasingly become a desirable target group for mobile phone providers. Although there is abundant literature describing the use of mobile phones among older adults, segmentation studies on this group of consumers remain scant and inco...

This document describes in full details the weighting procedures for the ESS Round 7. The document is a result of a repeating exercise for all weighting steps using very formal technical approach for weighting that was independently conducted by another researcher (Nejc Berzelak) following the procedures established for previous calculations of wei...
Article

Computers play an important role in everyday multitasking. Within this context, we focus on respondent multitasking (RM) in web surveys. RM occurs when users engage in other activities while responding to a web survey questionnaire. The conceptual framework is built on existing literature on multitasking, integrating knowledge from both cognitive p...

Daily activity sees data constantly flowing through cameras, the internet, satellites, radio frequencies, sensors, private appliances, cars, smartphones, tablets and the like. Among all the tools currently used, mobile devices, especially mobile phones, smartphones and tablets, are the most widespread, with their use becoming prevalent in everyday...

Survey research literature predominantly focuses on methodological issues (such as survey errors and survey modes) which are related to the fielding activities of the survey data collection process. Much less attention is given to the broader administrative, managerial, infrastructural and process-integration aspects of pre-fielding (i.e., planning...

In light of the growing importance of web-based data in the social and behavioral sciences, WEBDATANET was established in 2011 as a COST Action (IS 1004) to create a multidisciplinary network of web-based data collection experts: (web) survey methodologists, psychologists, sociologists, linguists, economists, Internet scientists, media and public o...
Article
Introduction: Information and communication technology has an important effect on the development of survey data collection methods. In recent years, computer assisted mobile telephone interviewing (mobile CATI) is becoming an increasingly frequent option, supplementing or replacing face-to-face and fixed telephone interviews (Gallup Europe 2009)....

Due to low costs, speed, simplicity, interviewer assistance, and easy monitoring telephone interviewing had been the preferred mode of many survey practitioners for decades. However, technological developments related to information society, in particular the increasing rate of mobile-only individuals and households, are rapidly changing the survey...

The ReMO COST Action focuses on wellbeing and mental health within academia, a theme of strategic importance for the European Research Area. Previous research shows that low levels of wellbeing and mental health problems have a negative impact on individual, team and organizational performance, triggering significant costs. In addition, institutional context, organizational structure and culture, as well as managerial practices have significant impact on wellbeing and health of employees. Therefore, general insights on the causes of workplace wellbeing and mental health need to be refined with contextual specifics (i.e. in academia) in order to develop tailored, effective and efficient prevention and action programs.
