Funding for Dr. Alexander Wenz’ project on smartphone-based data collection

Dr. Alexander Wenz, Postdoctoral Fellow in the MZES Data and Methods Unit, has been granted funding from the Postdoctoral fellowship programme for leading early career researchers of the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung for his project B1.2301 "Acceptance of Smartphone Technologies for Social Science Data Collection".

The aim of the project is to increase the representativeness of smartphone-based data collection. A theoretical framework of the social acceptance of smartphones as a data collection tool will be developed and tested. The main questions are which social psychological factors explain the willingness to participate in smartphone-based studies and which measures can be used to increase willingness.
