Book Description

11 Dec 2002 0761959203 978-0761959205
`I recommend this text for anyone considering undertaking online literature searching and especially those wishing to conduct primary research via the internet. It is extremely comprehensive, very well illustrated, with worked examples of HTML online forms, and case studies, and a wide range of further source material for further reading' - Nurse Researcher

Offering a concise, comprehensive guide to conducting research on the Internet, this book provides a detailed explanation of all the main areas of Internet research. It distinguishes between primary research (using the Internet to recruit participants, to administer the research process and to collect results) and secondary research (using the Internet to access available material online).

The book is designed for social science researchers and presents a user-friendly, practical guide that will be invaluable to both students and researchers who wish to incorporate the Internet into their research practice.

Product Description

About the Author

I commenced a degree in psychology at the University of Hertfordshire (then Hatfield Polytechnic) in 1987, with primary interests in social psychology, counselling psychology and social constructionist perspectives. Subsequently, I developed interests in cognitive psychology, philosophy of science and philosophy of mind, and upon finishing my degree I went on to study at the Centre for Cognitive Science (now 'Informatics') at Edinburgh University where I completed an MSc in Cognitive Science and Natural Language in 1991. I stayed on there to complete a PhD in 1996; my thesis focused on the nature of 'folk psychology' and its role in developed scientific psychological theorising. After then working for a brief period as a Research Associate at the Human Communication Research Centre, Edinburgh University, I took up a full time Lectureship at the University of Bolton in 1997. I have been working at the Open University since September 2007.
