Wittrock, Jill; Kimmel, Linda; Hunscher, Brian; Le, Kien Trung – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Proxy reporting is a common practice during survey data collection to increase response rates while reducing fieldwork costs, and agreement between proxies and self-reports is critical to make reliable and valid inferences. This study is the first to unpack what influences proxy accuracy in a non-Western setting using data from the 2012 Qatar…

Vermeylen, Saskia; Clark, Gordon – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Some social scientists have criticised the workings of research-ethics committees on the grounds that their biomedical model is ill-suited to some social-science research in both practical and philosophical terms. In this paper we review these criticisms and propose an alternative approach to pre-research ethical review that is based on the…

Vigurs, Katy; Kara, Helen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
This article reports on an attempt to use photo-elicitation to explore contested intergenerational perceptions and experiences of 'place' in one English village. Participants actively disrupted the photo-elicitation project and ended up co-creating an enriched research design that allowed them to represent how they experienced 'place'. The…

Lie, Rico; Witteveen, Loes – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
The notion of visual informed consent (VIC) is developed in the context of capturing on film the clarification of the purpose of data collection, the use of information obtained, and the rights, risks and benefits of participation on the one hand, and the registration of the participant's understanding of this and of given consent on the other.…

von der Lippe, Holger; Gamper, Markus – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
There is an increasing body of research which examines the reliability and validity of different modes of network measurement with most studies focusing on the classical paper or digital network questionnaires. Visual methods of data collection, in which interviewees draw their ego-centered network in a pictorial representation, still live a kind…

Le Roux, Cheryl S. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
The changing face of qualitative research has opened up discourses on the validity and rigour of research processes and products. A current debate is whether the criteria traditionally used to judge the rigour of quantitative research are appropriate to assess the academic integrity of qualitative research including autoethnography. The purpose of…

Schlachter, Steven; Rolf, Skylar – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Recently, implicit methods have been employed as a method to understand the underlying attitudes of the participant while also bypassing the social desirability biases that explicit measures are vulnerable to. Unfortunately, the literature has not considered the viewpoints of the individuals who participate in this process and the face validity…

Fletcher, Amber J. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Critical realism (CR) is a useful philosophical framework for social science; however, little guidance is available on which precise methods -- including methods of data collection, coding, and analysis -- are best suited to applied CR research. This article provides a concrete example of applied qualitative research using CR as a philosophical…

Goulden, Murray; Greiffenhagen, Christian; Crowcroft, Jon; McAuley, Derek; Mortier, Richard; Radenkovic, Milena; Sathiaseelan, Arjuna – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Drawing on the experiences of a novel collaborative project between sociologists and computer scientists, this paper identifies a set of challenges for fieldwork that are generated by this "wild interdisciplinarity. Public Access Wi-Fi Service" was a project funded by an 'in-the-wild' research programme, involving the study of digital…

This article brings together recent developments in the methodological literature on case selection in multi-method research (MMR), design of process tracing studies and the relevance of temporality in the explanation of political processes. It presents an extension of set-theoretic MMR by introducing a comparative process tracing (CPT) framework…

Lancaster, Kari – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
While the methods used to study 'elites' are of particular relevance in policy research, to date there has been little examination of the particular challenges associated with 'elite' interviewing in this field. More specifically, the issues associated with interviewing 'elites' while conducting qualitative research in a contested policy domain,…

Blanchard, Philippe; Rihoux, Benoît; Álamos-Concha, Priscilla – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
A map provides a unique view over the complex relationships of competition and complementarity between methods. It goes beyond the usual approaches to methods, namely monographic, mixed, encyclopaedic and classificatory. A diverse set of 50 social and political science methods instructors were surveyed about their specialty along 17 dimensions…

Jewitt, Carey; Xambo, Anna; Price, Sara – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
In this paper we examine methodological innovation in the social sciences through a focus on researching the body in digital environments. There are two strands to our argument as to why this is a useful site to explore methodological innovation in the social sciences. First, researching the body in digital environments places new methodological…
