Durrant, Gabriele B.; Maslovskaya, Olga; Smith, Peter W.F. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Researchers have become increasingly interested in better understanding the survey data collection process in interviewer-administered surveys. However, tools for analysing paradata capturing information about field processes, also called call record data, are still not yet fully explored. This paper introduces sequence analysis as a simple tool…

Paulus, Trena M.; Pope, Elizabeth M.; Woolf, Nicholas; Silver, Christina – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Few studies have explored approaches to teaching qualitative data analysis software (QDAS). As more researchers rely on self-teaching, more research into best practices for developing QDAS expertise is warranted. In this paper, we report our experience using the Five-Level QDA® method to guide the design of an introductory ATLAS.ti workshop. By…

Walter, Maggie; Suina, Michele – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
The field of Indigenous methodologies has grown strongly since Tuhiwai Smith's 1999 groundbreaking book "Decolonizing Indigenous Methodologies." For the most part however, there has been a marked absence of quantitative methodologies with the methods aligned with Indigenous methodologies predominantly qualitative. This article proposes…

Varvantakis, Christos; Nolas, Sevasti-Melissa – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
In this paper, we argue for a view of analysis as an embodied practice and review others' testimonies of carrying out multimodal ethnography. This review suggests that metaphors are key for communicating what happens to "us" in the course of the research and our subsequent sense-making practices. We identify four metaphors for…

Brown, Nicole – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This paper considers the use of identity boxes as a data collection method to elicit experiences. Participants were asked to respond to questions using objects to represent their answers. The rationale for using identity boxes was to allow for a more embodied, less textual approach. The identity boxes were then also used to create an artistic…

Berchtold, André – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Most quantitative studies in the social sciences suffer from missing data. However, despite the large availability of documents and software to treat such data, it appears that many social scientists do not apply good practices regarding missing data. We analyzed quantitative papers published in 2017 in six top-level social science journals.…

Vogl, Susanne; Schmidt, Eva-Maria; Zartler, Ulrike – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Multiple perspective interviews (MPIs) involve interviewing members of a social group separately and triangulating their accounts during analysis to gain insights into the functioning of such groups (e.g. families). So far, there has been little engagement with the specific challenges of MPI research during the analysis, particularly with…

York, Richard – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
A common motivation for adding control variables to statistical models is to reduce the potential for spurious findings when analyzing non-experimental data and to thereby allow for more reliable causal inferences. However, as I show here, unless "all" potential confounding factors are included in an analysis (which is unlikely to be…

Thelwall, Mike – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
The need to elicit public opinion about predefined topics is widespread in the social sciences, government and business. Traditional survey-based methods are being partly replaced by social media data mining but their potential and limitations are poorly understood. This article investigates this issue by introducing and critically evaluating a…

Vogl, Susanne; Zartler, Ulrike; Schmidt, Eva-Maria; Rieder, Irene – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Collecting multiple perspectives data (e.g. from related individuals) in a qualitative longitudinal design can provide rich understanding of the dynamics at play in complex relational systems, and the different perceptions of people involved. However, such approaches are inherently challenging due to the complexity and volume of data involved. So…

Sligo, J. L.; Nairn, K. M.; McGee, R. O. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Mixed methods research requires integration of qualitative and quantitative data. However, there is debate about how to define integration and what is required for integration to occur. This paper describes a mixed methods research project which revisits datasets from different eras, which were originally instigated for different purposes and had…

Fabo, Brian; Kahanec, Martin – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
In this paper, we compare the estimates of earnings determinants based on the non-probabilistic WageIndicator web survey with those based on the widely used, representative EU Study of Income and Living Conditions survey. Using 10 years of Dutch data, we show that there exists an established segment of predominantly junior workers from which the…

Spencer, Neil H.; Lay, Margaret; Kevan de Lopez, Lindsey – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
When undertaking quantitative hypothesis testing, social researchers need to decide whether the data with which they are working is suitable for parametric analyses to be used. When considering the relevant assumptions they can examine graphs and summary statistics but the decision making process is subjective and must also take into account the…

Tarrant, Anna – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
In recent years, the possibilities and pitfalls of qualitative secondary analysis have been the subject of on-going academic debate, contextualised by the growing availability of qualitative data in digital archives and the increasing interest of funding councils in the value of data re-use. This article contributes to, and extends these…

Quartiroli, Alessandro; Knight, Sharon M.; Etzel, Edward F.; Monaghan, Molly – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
The usefulness of the online Skype system for qualitative data collection has been well documented, but its application in qualitative data analysis has been largely ignored. This article provides insight into the use of Skype in the context of interdisciplinary team research, with a focus on the analytical phase of a qualitative investigation.…
