Internet Inquiry: Dialogue Among Researchers addresses the quandary faced by many Internet researchers: How do you evaluate qualitative research, let alone carry out studies that result in persuasive findings? Much critique is currently levied against qualitative inquiry in internet studies because it is perceived as anecdote-fueled speculation. This edited volume will assist new scholars as well as seasoned practitioners in this arena make informed choices in how they conduct inquiry. Contributors raise key questions researchers need to consider. Rather than providing single "how to" answers, the authors voice distinctive and divergent viewpoints on how to think about and conduct qualitative internet studies.
