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…

Atkinson, Paul; Sampson, Cathy – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
We identify and discuss the phenomenon of narrative stability, in the context of current methodological literature on interviewing. It derives from two independent studies, undertaken fifteen years apart, of members of the same genetics research group who were interviewed by different researchers. The first ('Discovery') interviews were collected…

Mao, Jina; Feldman, Elana – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
In this paper, we explore the methodological implications of conducting qualitative interviews when researchers and participants come from different social classes. Singling out class on its own terms, rather than considering it as an auxiliary structural factor, we examine the unique challenges that arise during cross-class interviews. Such…

Kruger, Louis J.; Rodgers, Rachel F.; Long, Stephanie J.; Lowy, Alice S. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Individual interviews have traditionally been an important method of data collection in multiple disciplines, including psychology. However, research comparing individual interviews with focus groups has generated mixed results regarding which method is more effective in investigating sensitive topics. The purpose of the present study was to…

This study explored whether the interviewers' judgments of respondents' performances in an initial survey can predict survey participation for a second survey among the same group of respondents in a panel study. Specifically, this study examined two interviewer variables: the interviewers' judgments of (1) the respondents' understanding of survey…

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…

Reflexivity is a multimodal research feature that relies on the researcher's subjectivity and self-awareness. This paper discusses uses of reflexivity when carrying out qualitative in-depth interviews on sexual topics.

Lau, Charles Q. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
This study investigates how an interviewer's characteristics affect how respondents answer survey questions about democracy and political engagement. I analyze data from the 2008 Afrobarometer surveys, in which 810 interviewers surveyed 27,713 respondents across 20 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Using these data, I study how interviewer…

Gravlee, Clarence C.; Maxwell, Chad R.; Jacobsohn, Aryeh; Bernard, H. Russell – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
This article tests whether collecting pile-sort data online produces results similar to those obtained with face-to-face methods. We collected pile sorts from 227 university students in the cultural domain of emotions. To test for mode and design effects, we randomly assigned participants to face-to-face or internet modes and to either a 15- or…

Windsong, Elena Ariel – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
As intersectionality gains more prominence, scholars still face difficulties of incorporating principles of intersectionality into empirical research. Key concepts of intersectionality theory include moving away from additive thinking, relationality, and social constructionism. An important challenge is how to incorporate these concepts into…

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…

Thorpe, Rachel; Hawkes, Gail; Dune, Tinashe; Fileborn, Bianca; Pitts, Marian; Minichiello, Victor – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
This paper examines the role of the research process in shaping the construction of knowledge about sensitive topics in in-depth interviews particularly with regard to researcher identity and cultural influences or norms. We argue that these influences shape all aspects of the research process and that researchers will benefit from reflecting upon…

Nir, Esther – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Qualitative research with political elites provides unique opportunities to access intimate details regarding the perceptions and opinions of key decision-makers; yet limited scholarly attention has been directed at the difficulties involved in recruiting these groups for interviews. In this article, I outline a series of targeted strategies aimed…
