    So what are the benefits of LimeSurvey over Qualtrics? I imagine that a lot of these functions could be completed in Qualtrics (but you might have to pay for them). Just curious – as I have never used LimeSurvey before.

      A big advantage is simply the open source status of LimeSurvey. In addition to not costing anything, it ensures accessibility (anyone can carry out what you share/develop). The expression manager and the ability to call on variables seems to me to have more useful applications than anything the major platforms offer (albeit, there’s a bit more of a learning curve). Finally, the survey logic procedures (e.g., showing one question based on another question’s response and more complicated extensions) are more full-featured than in Qualtrics (and, IMO, harder to set up wrong). Naturally a lot of it is preference. LimeSurvey’s open source status and feature-rich build are what do it for me.
