Survey research is a part of the scientific process – and even a science on its own. So why do researchers abandon the science when they implement their studies?

A geneticist would never purchase non-sterile test tubes from an unknown source to capture saliva samples from research subjects. So why do social scientists routinely treat their own data collection tools this way?
