The attractions of a low-cost, easy to administer survey medium which provides sound and fast response rates are obvious. E-mail, either combined with the World Wide Web (WWW) or on its own, is that medium. Yet, despite e-mail's established use in a range of information and commercial areas, researchers are only just beginning to explore the possibilities of carrying out on-line data collection. This paper describes an application of the new survey medium showing how it can be used for rapid and highly cost-effective data collection. Recommendations are made concerning the most suitable circumstances for this kind of data collection.
