help with dissertation research

Travel Forums General Talk help with dissertation research

1. Posted by flintstone (Budding Member 7 posts) 9y

hi all,

i was wondering if anyone wouldn't mind completing a very short survey to help with my university dissertation. I am researching disintermediation (cutting out of the middle-man) within the travel industry and if online marketing tools can reverse the effects for the high street travel agent.

the survey is only 6 questions only takes one minute to complete and collects no personal data and i would be very greatful.

if you would like a copy of the findings, this would be no problem and may interest some of you.

Thankyou very very much for reading this and hopefully taking part.

the link to the survey is

thankyou once again..

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the email and formal request. I took a look at your survey and like two things about it. A. no personal data collected and b. nice and short :)

I've taken it just to verify. So, after reviewing, yes, it's allowed to put this survey on the forums. I recommend including in there that I've ok'd it when putting the link in the forums as other moderators might remove it otherwise. Naturally, one forum only, but that goes for any post in our forums.

Cheers,

Sam

I was going to contact Sam or Peter for verification when I read the first part of the message. It's good that you obtained the admin's authorisation first and included it in your message.

Anyway, I've taken part too. Perhaps you could post the result here when it's done. :)

yeah il definately post it.. everyone that takes part is allowed to request a full copy of the report after a certain date (due to university ethical regulations) but i will post the results of the questions up if its of any interest to any one.

I had the same reflex as Hien's. Good practice including the approval; let's put it in the forum rules like this. Also completed your survey.
