Erik Knudsen har sammen med Mikael Poul Johannesson publisert en ny artikkel i tidsskriftet Political Communication. I artikkelen “Beyond the Limits of Survey Experiments: How Conjoint Designs Advance Causal Inference in Political Communication Research” undersøker de hvordan forenede designer innen spørreundersøkelser kan være et nyttig verktøy for forskere innen politisk kommunikasjon som felt. Artikkelen finner du her og sammendraget kan leses under.

This paper calls attention to what is arguably the most notable advancement in survey experiments over the last decade: conjoint designs. The benefit of conjoint design is its capacity to study and compare the causal effects of several dimensions simultaneously. Although survey experiments have long been a preferred method for assessing causal effects, the method falls short when studying multidimensional causal relations.
Researchers face a trade-off between a lack of statistical power or a restriction in experimental conditions. Conjoint designs solve this problem by letting the researcher vary an indefinite number of factors in one experiment. This method is quickly gaining ground in social and political science but has yet to be widely practiced in political communication research. This article argues that conjoint designs are ideal for studying political communication effects and highlights the possible benefits of using and innovating conjoint designs in political communication research. We make available sample scripts and demonstrate the value of this methodological technique through empirical examples of trust in news media and selective exposure to political news.

..Erik Knudsen has, together with Mikael Poul Johannesson, written a new article for the journal Political Communication. In the article, titled “Beyond the Limits of Survey Experiments: How Conjoint Designs Advance Causal Inference in Political Communication Research” they examine how conjoint designs for surveys might prove to be an invaluable tool for researchers within political communication as a field. The article can be found here and the abstract is available below.
