Claire Hewson is Lecturer in Psychology at The Open University. She has a long-standing interest in using the Internet to carry out primary research, and has collected data using a range of IMR methods including surveys, psychometrics and experiments, to investigate issues in: commonsense understanding, particularly folk psychology; online assessment methods in an educational context; the validity of IMR 

methods. She was commissioned to lead a working party to produce the recent British Psychological Society (BPS) guidelines on ethics in Internet-mediated research (2013), has delivered a number of talks and training sessions on this and related topics, and has published more broadly in the area of IMR



Carl Vogel, a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin, is Senior Lecturer in Computational Linguistics and Director of the Centre for Computing and Language Studies at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin.  His work in computational linguistics as a cognitive science frequently draws upon evidence abstracted from Internet accessed data, and accordingly he dwells on the accompanying research methodology issues.  Vogel was on the Management Committee of the successful European COST Action IS1004: Web-based data-collection -- methodological challenges, solutions and implementations (WEBDATANET).



Dianna Laurent teaches a variety of classes for both the English and the Languages and Communication departments at Southeastern Louisiana University and at St. Joseph′s Abbey and Seminary College.  She publishes on a variety of subjects involving the Internet. Dr. Laurent is the associate editor of the yearly ATTW bibliography and the business manager of 19th Century Studies for the Nineteenth Century Studies Association. 

Review:

Written from the perspective of psychology and cognitive science, this interdisciplinary book offers a valuable introduction to both quantitative and qualitative Internet research methods. With many hands-on examples, it is a practical guide to dos and don'ts of the profession.

--Dr. Lars Kaczmirek

A much needed update to Internet-mediated research that will be highly useful for students and researchers. The book's chapters are nicely interwoven, with in-depth explanation of methods and applications. A must read.
--Ulf-Dietrich Reips
