Naturally, I have to start by sharing my Sage Publications book, Online Interviews in Real Time!
Online Interviews in Real Time focuses on data collection through dynamic online interviews in text-based, videoconference, meeting space or 3D immersive environments. Examples from my own research and others who have used these tools for scholarly purposes are included in each chapter’s “Researchers’ Notebook: Stories of Online Inquiry.” Since technology features—and the devices used to access them—change rapidly, a companion website will be updated regularly to offer guidance in addition to templates, links and examples, syllabi and learning activities. Also, a Blackboard course cartridge is available on request, with a Masters or PhD course design.
Online Interviews in Real Time offers emerging and experienced scholars the theoretical background and practical tips they need in order to for design and conduct credible online interview research. Ethical research practice is a central theme throughout the book. My intention for the book is that it can be adopted as a course text and serve as a resource for researchers, as well as for instructors and mentors, committee and review board members.15th January 2010 at 4:39 pm #5172

See this new source of information and exchange on ethical issues:
“Internet Research Ethics (IRE) is an emerging cross-disciplinary field which studies how research is conducted in online environments and seeks to resolve the subsequent ethical dilemmas in normative and practical terms. While similar to its physical counterpart, conducting scholarly research online is different in terms of ethics and values. For example, online surveys bring new privacy concerns. Research in chat rooms confound our notions of subject anonymity and identifiability. Scraping data from social networks or public blogs complicate issues of informed consent.”
