    Saurabh, a small question, why do you want to collect real names of people, and not keep the questionnaire anonymous?

    At least I need 100 Respondents,to analyze the data…

    Saurabh that sounds so much better. Also do you think people will take your questionnaire seriously if you use informal language ‘u’ instead of you? I will surely fill it for you. Give yourself some time to get a decent response rate.

    Also just out of curiosity what are your data analysis techniques. And I also have a feeling that for people outside India the question ‘have you ever referred to a research method text book’ would be very surprising! I mean how can you do research if you are not trained for it, but given the Indian context I can understand where it is coming from.

    Dear Mridula,

    I am mechanical engineer, an energy auditor, recent joined MBA Program

    , and so Student of MBA (Oil & Gas), Second Semester.
    I am working on an Assignment on “Problems Encountered by Researchers in India & abroad”.

    which is given to me as one of the components for Internal Assessment for the subject “Research Methodology”

    I am in process of learning ” Research methodology”

    So far from 34 responses , there had been few who have never used …………

    Second when they have used the book…..they had given the name to me………that is the plus point…

    Many many thanks for going through the form……….and thanks for ………

    and I’ll change that U also… to “you”………

    Regards

    Saurabh, one week is too little time. Is it possible to bargain for more time? Do you know of some mailing lists for higher education? You could send your request there too. Also most of the B schools have email of their faculty listed, so maybe a request to them too. But who is your target respondent?

    Also how would you analyze your open ended question where you get ‘text’ in response?

    Hope I am not bothering you with too many questions.

    Hey Mridula, You are not at all bothering me….
    Look its not easy to find some one who give response so its luck for me, that by chance i came on this portal …

    I need to look for emails of faculty of B schools ……..

    For open ended questions , even I am not sure how can I analyze.but 1 thing ..these questions give u chance of the reply “out of box” which i cannot think of……
    and I need to consult research experts and my faculty for further analysis but these open ended questions are key……………
    And there had been two or three smart open ended replies..which can be given huge weight age…

    Let see how it goes….

    I started with this
    http://spicyflavours.net/index.php?showtopic=11122

    and then i changed to this
    http://sites.saurabhjain.in/research-methodology/problems

    then

    the final one
    http://research.mypassion.in to give better look (I merged with my biggest social project My passion where I want to provide platform to people to show there passion to world, cannot tell details here as it will be not good but can message u , if u wanna be intrested)

    just now thought I can add one more dimension say country say what the research scenario in US , what in singapore….but its not easy to work alone..

    Time can be increased..but need to get 100 respondents in these 7 days….

    Good day
    Regards
    Saurabh jain
