Perriam, Jessamy; Birkbak, Andreas; Freeman, Andy – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Qualitative and mixed methods digital social research often relies on gathering and storing social media data through the use of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). In past years this has been relatively simple, with academic developers and researchers using APIs to access data and produce visualisations and analysis of social networks and…

Summers, Kate – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
There is increasing emphasis on understanding economic advantage alongside disadvantage -- on studying both 'poverty' and 'riches'. This trend prompts and requires new ethical reflection. I argue that in qualitative interview research, a clearer distinction needs to be drawn between ethical commitments to individual research participants, and the…

Fugard, Andi – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Accurate census data is essential for a variety of government planning functions and plays an important methodological role in social science. This article responds to issues raised by Alice Sullivan concerning how the UK 2021 census will ask about sex and gender. The two-centuries-old question about male/female sex is not ideal, even with the new…

Sullivan, Alice – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
The UK census authorities have proposed guidance for the 2021 census indicating that the sex question may be answered according to subjective gender identity. This raises issues about the measurement of sex and gender identity which other data collection exercises are also contending with. This paper addresses the questions that have arisen…

Hughes, Jason; Hughes, Kahryn; Sykes, Grace; Wright, Katy – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
We centrally consider the question of what interview data can be used to 'say' through a dialogue with advocates of the 'radical critique' of interview studies. We propose that while the critique has considerable utility in drawing to 'the social life of interviews' and the pervasiveness of notions of the 'romantic subject', it simultaneously goes…

Hughes, Kahryn; Hughes, Jason; Tarrant, Anna – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
This paper addresses two interrelated questions concerning what interview data are and how researchers might use them. The first considers the value of a shift from a predominant or exclusive focus upon how data are constructed and produced at interview, and towards how such data might be apprehended through different forms of…

Edwards, Rosalind; Holland, Janet – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
In this article, we consider challenges for the existence and practice of qualitative research interviews. We review key features of qualitative interviewing, in particular the debate over the radical critique of interviewing and the nature of the data it generates, to set the scene for our arguments about the current standing and future prognosis…

Sullivan, Alice – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
This article replies to the responses to my article on "Sex and the Census: Why surveys should not conflate sex and gender identity". Fugard conflates sex itself with the characteristics associated with sex, such as finger length ratios, leading to the erroneous implication that binary sex is not a useful explanatory variable. Hines…

Cowhitt, Thomas; Butler, Timothy; Wilson, Elaine – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Literature reviews are required at early stages of a traditional research progression. Many systematic approaches help researchers identify relevant literature. However, there is far less support for interpreting large collections of references. Understanding the evolution of knowledge within a discipline requires an awareness of the collaborative…

Chesser, Stephanie; Porter, Michelle M.; Tuckett, Anthony G. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
In this paper we argue that investigators using citizen science should attend, as much as possible, to certain ethical considerations when conceptualizing projects by embracing 1) inclusivity (finding ways to include those who have traditionally been excluded), 2) adaptation (modifying projects to provide greater opportunities for varied…

Hines, Sally – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Counting the Cost of Difference' replies to Alice Sullivan's piece on gender auditing in the UK Census. While Sullivan argues that the proposed changes to audit gender identity will dilute the meaning of 'sex' and thus the needs of women, I suggest that auditing on self-declared gender in Census 2021 signals a move towards the further recognition…

Rodríguez-Dorans, Edgar; Jacobs, Paula – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
This paper proposes the method of 'narrative portraiture', which, located within the wider field of narrative studies, offers an analytical tool to narrative data. Two research projects, one on disability and one on identity, are used to illustrate how the method can be applied. While the paper will focus on the methodological benefits and…

Nichols, Austin Lee; Edlund, John E. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Although careless respondents have wreaked havoc on research for decades, the prevalence and implications of these participants has likely increased due to many new methodological techniques currently in use. Across three studies, we examined the prevalence of careless responding in participants, several means of predicting careless respondents,…
