The internet is a compelling tool for research, enabling efficient, cost-effective data collection and facilitating access to large samples and new populations. This book presents a state-of-the-art guide to the internet as a tool for conducting research in the social and behavioural sciences using qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches.

New to this edition:

  • Fully re-written to reflect the emergence of Web 2.0 technologies
  • Expanded coverage of web surveys for data collection
  • Unobtrusive methods to harvest data from online archives and documents
  • New practical tools and resources, where to find them, and how to keep up-to-date with new developments as they emerge
  • New chapter on research ethics and discussion of ethical practicalities throughout

Guiding the reader through the theoretical, ethical and practical issues of using the internet in research, this is an essential resource for researchers wishing to assess how the latest techniques, tools and methods in internet-mediated research may support and expand research in their own field.

About the Author:

Claire Hewson is Lecturer in Psychology at The Open University. She has a long-standing interest in using the Internet to carry out primary research, and has collected data using a range of IMR methods including surveys, psychometrics and experiments, to investigate issues in: commonsense understanding, particularly folk psychology; online assessment methods in an educational context; the validity of IMR 

methods. She was commissioned to lead a working party to produce the recent British Psychological Society (BPS) guidelines on ethics in Internet-mediated research (2013), has delivered a number of talks and training sessions on this and related topics, and has published more broadly in the area of IMR

Review:

Written from the perspective of psychology and cognitive science, this interdisciplinary book offers a valuable introduction to both quantitative and qualitative Internet research methods. With many hands-on examples, it is a practical guide to dos and don'ts of the profession.

--Dr. Lars Kaczmirek

A much needed update to Internet-mediated research that will be highly useful for students and researchers. The book's chapters are nicely interwoven, with in-depth explanation of methods and applications. A must read.
--Ulf-Dietrich Reips

This book is a comprehensively referenced starting point for a vast range of directions in social and behavioural research. At under 200 pages it is a worthwhile read as an introduction or an overview of what the internet can offer researchers in a range of academic disciplines. A useful guide.--Lydia Wysocki
