Reporting on Qualitative Internet Research

Reporting on Qualitative Internet Research

(p.51) 3 Reporting on Qualitative Internet Research
The Internet

Christine Hine

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on how qualitative Internet research methods can effectively be presented in research write-ups. It first discusses the methods section of the research report. It then examines the core of the research report, focusing on styles of writing that interweave theory and data and develop an evocative account of the field. It also discusses concerns about anonymity and confidentiality that this richly data-focused style of writing about the Internet raises. The chapter explores the question of reflexivity and the specific role that it plays in qualitative writing about the Internet. It considers the temporal dimension of Internet research and looks at the ways in which the timing of events features in qualitative Internet writing. The chapter concludes with a summary of aspects to reflect on when developing a style for a research report.

Keywords:   qualitative Internet research, research report, methods section, reflexivity, qualitative writing, temporal, styles of writing
