You may or may not choose to indicate in your work that you used the SoSci Survey software or the server www.soscisurvey.de to collect your data. Strictly speaking, it is important to distinguish between the software and the server/service. While a computer program can be cited by name, the server can be cited only by the providing the URL in the text, as follows:

"The online questionnaire was generated using SoSci Survey (Leiner, 2021) and was made available to users via www.soscisurvey.de."

The aforementioned text represents a sample citation for the software according to the APA bibliography format. The software on www.soscisurvey.de is updated regularly. The current version can be seen after logging in to the program on the bottom left-side of the homepage.

Leiner, D. J. (2021). SoSci Survey (Version 3.2.31) [Computer software]. Available at https://www.soscisurvey.de

see https://www.soscisurvey.de/en/about

The version number depends on your survey administration period. Here are the dates of the most recent updates (for official releases see Program Versions for the Local Survey Server):

  • 3.2.24 (16.04.2021)
  • 3.2.25 (30.04.2021)
