This paper looks at the growing variety of data sources in research – e.g., biomarkers – that are not traditional question-based surveys, and how these can be usefully documented.

This paper describes the Questionnaire Development Documentation project, a system created by GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences to permit permanent electronic documentation of questionnaire development and the final state of the instrument.
