Join SAGE for a webinar with Janet Salmons, author of Online Interviews in Real Time (2010) and editor of the new Cases in Online Interview Research. Dr. Salmons will discuss her "E-Interview Research Framework," which provides key questions and guidelines for many issues inherent in research that utilizes data collected online. She will draw on both books—in addition to her extensive experience as an online researcher and a graduate faculty member at Capella University—to provide examples that illustrate research options, dilemmas and successes, as well as to answer your questions.
The webinar will take place Wednesday November 30th at 12 noon EST/9am PST.

With the advent of rich synchronous online communications, researchers can interview participants from across the globe to create the knowledge we need to understand our changing world. Faculty who teach or guide researchers are finding that students want to use the tools they communicate with every day to communicate with research participants. But as e-research offers new opportunities the complexity of decision-making increases as well. New questions emerge about how to design and conduct such studies:
- How can the researcher justify the choice to interview online rather than in person or on the phone?
- What online technology and interview approach are most suitable given the purpose of the study?
- What skills will the interviewer (and interviewee) need?
- How does the researcher obtain informed consent from credible participants?
- What ethical dilemmas need attention?
Join Janet Salmons to discusss these issues, and more!

"This is a very timely addition to the set of essential methodological texts that every qualitative researcher should have in their professional library. It covers an area where there has been little writing to date, it does so in a very read-friendly way, and it is comprehensive enough for even the novice reader, while still including the more senior researcher."
