You fill a questionnaire of a study you are most interested in.
After completion of the questionnaire you obtain meaningful feedback based on the underlying research model, along with a scientifically-grounded, automated interpretation of your individual results.
You can share and discuss your results with others or invite others to participate in a SelfSurvey.
SelfSurvey builds on the principles of evidence-based management and engaged scholarship. Researchers provide their insights from academic research studies as ‘SelfSurveys’ in order to inform, inspire, and impact practice.
SelfSurvey uses second-generation path modelling and prediction techniques to derive respondent-specific benchmarks based on a conceptual model specified by the researcher and underlying data.
This project examines to which extent the use of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITSM) can improve the alignment between IT service providers. i.e. organizational units providing IT services, and internal departments (the business) or external clients, respectively. The study is novel as a special focus is placed on the role of contextual factors (e.g., strategy, firm size, culture) for an adequate ITSM practice maturity.

The effective use of data is the basis for societal progress. The SelfSurvey platform fits into the Citizen Science strategy at University of Hagen, as it can involve practitioners in current research initiatives from a wide range of application fields.

SelfSurvey is an independent, research-based survey platform that brings together practitioners, analysts, and researchers in order to make scientific insights available for addressing practice-relevant questions under the highest data protection requirements.
Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich
The partial least squares-based prediction underlying SelfSurvey has the capability to provide respondent-specific benchmarks in real-time based on conceptual models specified and validated by the researcher.

If respondents reflect upon SelfSurvey’s feedback in the light of their own situation, the results can indeed provide increased insight for practice and thus lend real impact to academic scholarship.
Researchers can launch new SelfSurveys by making their research actionable for practitioner audiences and thereby contributing to practice through engaged scholarship.
Managers can take part in SelfSurveys of their interest and retrieve meaningful benchmarking information that is catered to their company’s specific situation and grounded in academic knowledge.
Consultants can invite clients to SelfSurveys and confidentially review the clients’ benchmarking results to enter into a dialogue about the possible strategies for acting upon SelfSurvey’s guidance.
