Corple, Danielle J.; Linabary, Jasmine R. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Many ethical concerns in online big data research stem from a pervasive assumption that data are disembodied and place-less. While some scholars have begun addressing the ethical dilemmas of big data, few offer approaches or tools that fully grapple with the situatedness of online data and its ethical implications. We draw on feminist new…

This could affect the validity of collected data, especially sensitive data. Using sexual behavior data collected in a 2017-2018 cross-sectional survey of Haitian women (n = 304), we evaluated the associations between…

Lingwood, Jamie; Levy, Rachael; Billington, Josie; Rowland, Caroline – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
The fact that many sub-populations do not take part in research, especially participants from lower socioeconomic (SES) backgrounds, is a serious problem in education research. To increase the participation of such groups we must discover what social, economic and practical factors prevent participation, and how to overcome these barriers. In the…

Santiago de Roock, Roberto – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Analysis of social action has increasingly considered the place of 'things' in recent years, including seeing objects (both physical and digital) as co-participants in social interaction, systems, and the research process. This article argues that video ethnography is well positioned to address such considerations including, with some…

Ting, Carol; Fitzgerald, Richard – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Contrary to its typical presentation in scientific publications as a certain and linear process, in reality, the experimental method, not least the design aspect of it, requires a great deal of trial-and-error and ad hoc decision-making on the part of the researchers. This uncertain and contingent aspect of research, although little known outside…
