Murray, Órla Meadhbh – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Institutional ethnography (IE) is a feminist approach to research focusing on the organising power of texts and language. This paper explores "how" to analyse texts in IE while considering the importance of reflexivity and accountability to feminist research. Based on a five year study of UK university audit processes, I developed a…

Hilbert, Sven; Pargent, Florian; Kraus, Elisabeth; Naumann, Felix; Eichhorn, Kathryn; Ungar, Patrizia; Bühner, Markus – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Two studies were conducted to investigate how self-ratings on questionnaire items reflect the underlying real-scores. Participants gave numerical information about personal attributes (the real-scores), such as age, height, and weight, and subsequently rated themselves regarding these attributes. In Study 1, they rated themselves on a five-point…

Cernat, Alexandru; Keusch, Florian – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Surveys continue to be a popular way of collecting data in the social sciences. But, despite their popularity they have a number of limitations including the possibility of changing the behaviour of respondents. Such mere-measure or question-behaviour effects can compromise the external validity of social data. In this article, we use digital…

Buchanan, Ryan M.; Cook, Charlotte; Khakoo, Salim I.; Parkes, Julie – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
In this study, we collected mixed method social network data alongside a survey of people who inject drugs (PWID) to assess key assumptions of respondent-driven sampling (RDS). We found adherence to some assumptions and non-adherence to others. Specifically, sampling did occur through a connected network of PWID and the reported degree size of…

Dooley, Jemima – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
The impact of public participants in data analysis has been reported, but there is little research on public involvement of analysis of naturally occurring interactional data. Four video recordings of clinicians from out of hours primary care services visiting care home residents with dementia were analysed in data sessions involving 12 people…

Gavras, Konstantin; Höhne, Jan Karem – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
The rise of smartphone surveys, coupled with technological advancements, provide new ways for measuring respondents' political attitudes. The use of open questions with requests for voice answers instead of text answers may simplify the answer process and provide nuanced information. So far, research comparing the measurement quality of text and…

Hibben, Kristen Cibelli; Felderer, Barbara; Conrad, Frederick G. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Answering questions completely, accurately and honestly is not always the top priority for survey respondents. How might researchers motivate respondents to be more conscientious? One possibility is to elicit agreement from respondents to work hard and provide complete and accurate information. In their pioneering work in the 1970s and 80s,…

Love, J.; Bennetts, S. K.; Berthelsen, D.; Hackworth, N. J.; Westrupp, E. M.; Mensah, F. K.; Nicholson, J. M. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Demographic data, such as highest level of education attained, are often assumed to be relatively free from measurement error. As part of an evaluation of an early childhood parenting intervention, 654 parents reported their highest level of education via telephone interview at baseline and self-directed questionnaire at follow-up 5.7 years later.…

Facciani, Matthew; Brashears, Matthew E.; Zhong, Jingwen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Textual vignettes are a widely popular research tool, but they assume literacy and reading comprehension skills that limit their utility for both research with disadvantaged populations and cross-national research. We describe a new visual vignette approach, based on approaches used in studying populations with lower verbal ability, that avoids…

Kapinga, Laura; Huizinga, Rik; Shaker, Reza – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
This paper contributes to current debates on positionality by critically discussing and comparing three researchers' experiences doing research involving Muslims. We introduce "positionality meetings" to enhance reflexivity in qualitative research projects. Based on empirical evidence from our independent projects and the positionality…

Quinn, Anthony; Denney, David; Hardwick, Nick; Jalil, Rahul; Meek, Rosie – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
The benefits of government administrative data are well-established, but research has not examined processes by which these data can be identified, organised and governed in line with ethical considerations. This is an important undertaking given the potential benefits of robust administrative data, especially at a time when the collection of…

Ladini, Riccardo – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
In online surveys, the use of manipulation checks aimed at measuring respondents' attentiveness has become common. More than being measures of attentiveness pertaining to a specific survey, instructional manipulation checks (IMC) could work as generic measures of the quality of the answers a person gives when completing a questionnaire. By using…

Ali, Tahir; Buergelt, Petra T.; Maypilama, Elaine Lawurrpa; Paton, Douglas; Smith, James A.; Jehan, Noor – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Historically, non-Indigenous researchers have contributed to colonisation by research based on Western positivistic philosophical frameworks. This approach led to disembodying knowledge from Indigenous people's histories, worldviews, and cultural and social practices, thus perpetuating a deficit-based discourse which situates the responsibility of…

Lavorgna, Anita; Sugiura, Lisa – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Direct contacts with research participants in online ethnography are an important tool to better understand complex social dynamics in cyberspace. The current ethical approaches guiding academic research, however, can be problematic in this regard, creating unintended tensions leading to potential research biases as well as safety and wellbeing…

Landaluce-Calvo, M.; García-Lautre, Ignacio; de Rada, Vidal Díaz; Abascal, Elena – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Multiple-response questions are a common feature of survey-based research, as its advantages of information collection are well known. Statistical analysis of the responses, however, tends to be either one or two-dimensional, with the restrictions that this entails. This paper presents a multidimensional analysis protocol that provides the…
