Internet versus mailed questionnaires
OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether using Web-based technology could increase the response rates to an international survey.
CONCLUSIONS: Our Internet-based survey to surgeons resulted in a significantly lower response rate than a traditional mailed survey. Researchers should not assume that the widespread availability and potential ease of Internet-based surveys will translate into higher response rates.
