What is a typical approach to conducting a survey-based psychological experiment?
There seems to be a host of issues involved; some that seem particularly important are:
- the appropriate design of the experiment,
- ethical approval,
- securing funding.
There seems to be a number of books written about the topic, and it's hard to know where to begin. I'm largely after an outline of what one needs to know in order to go from nothing to having successfully conducted a survey-based experiment.
In a previous question, I received an answer that suggested conducting a survey-based experiment. Assuming (once I do a thorough literature review) I don't find any other answer to the question, I'd be interested in implementing the experiment (partly to answer the question itself, and partly for professional development). I'm a scientist, but not in a discipline where surveys would typically arise. As such, I have no experience in conducting a survey-based experiment.
