Researchers from various social science fields (e.g., sociologists, psychologists, political scientists, economists, and criminologists) at universities and non-commercial research institutes, may submit a regular proposal throughout the year.
Regular Proposal Submission
The GESIS Panel uses a Web-based submission system for managing the submission and peer-review process. Before you submit a proposal, please note the following points:

Please note, that:
The fast-track procedure offers researchers an opportunity to collect last-minute data on current topics within the GESIS Panel. Eligible studies should address a current topic, such as important forthcoming events (e.g., elections), contemporary changes in society (e.g., migration), or issues of public discussion (e.g., minimum wages). Please make sure to clearly justify the urgency of your data collection. You could, for example, list current news from the media.
The submitted questionnaire may comprise (a) up to three short single-choice questions, (b) one multiple choice question with a maximum of seven items, or (c) one open-ended question. In contrast to regular proposals, this questionnaire does not have to be submitted as a Unipark questionnaire, nor does it undergo an external review process.
To submit your questions on a current topic, please fill in the Fast-Track-Submission Form (859 KB), and sign the GESIS Panel General Terms and Conditions, and send them to email@example.com. Among all eligible proposals submitted before the deadline, the GESIS Panel Team randomly selects one questionnaire for the upcoming wave.
The deadline ends usually two months before data collection starts.
PLEASE NOTE: Since the GESIS Panel is almost fully booked in 2019, we can only accept new Fast-Track submissions again in 2020.
