Short Submission

The short submission procedure offers researchers the possibility to submit a short questionnaire within a simplified submission procedure. It will be reviewed internally by GESIS Panel staff. There are no deadlines for the short submission. Please note that the available survey slots for short submissions are limited.

The short submission allows only cross-sectional studies without experimental groups. For longitudinal data collection or experimental designs, please use our regular submission procedure. The questionnaire must not exceed a survey duration of one minute (according to our time measurement). Each of the following bullet points correspond to approximately one minute.

  • Five short single-choice questions
  • Three multiple-choice questions with a maximum of seven items
  • Two open-ended questions

Please note that the GESIS Panel does not allow matrix questions due to the mobile first design of the questionnaire. More information on the question types can be found in the GESIS Panel Survey Style Guide. In contrast to regular submission proposals, the questionnaire does not have to be submitted as a Unipark questionnaire.

We strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the FAQ Questionnaire Design (190 kB) and the Survey Style Guide (1.63 MB).
