SurveyMonkey Audience for Academics
Professors, grad students, and undergrads use SurveyMonkey Audience to get the research respondents they need in a fraction of the time it used to take them. Below, we provided helpful information for those interested in running an academic research project using SurveyMonkey Audience to buy survey responses.
Please review our design requirements and best practices to ensure a successful project: SurveyMonkey Audience Design Guidelines
In particular, we strongly encourage you to use a variation of question types, limit your use of Matrix/Rating Scale questions, and keep consent forms under 250 characters.
Whether you’re buying a US panel from SurveyMonkey Contribute or a global panel through our partners, you’ll get the responses you need for your project. Learn more about the survey respondents taking your survey.
Projects complete in just a few days, as long as the survey is compliant with our guidelines and performs sufficiently. If you're targeting a very specific type of audience or if the survey does not perform satisfactorily, the project can take longer to complete.
You can add a consent statement to your survey. We recommend any consent statement be 250 characters or less.
