Author Barnes, S.
Access date 17.05.2004
Abstract Currently, a variety of conflicting perspectives have been expressed about how to attribute people participating in computer-mediated environments. One point-of-view argues that online communication is similar to a printed text, therefore, the real names of participants should be listed. Conversely, people who study online support groups contend that stating names violates the privacy of the individual. To date, no clear guidelines exist and ethical choices need to be made. Using real examples, the author discusses some of the more difficult choices that were made during her five years of online research and describe the ethical principles used in current and future research strategies.
