Background Online synchronous interviews are conducted in “real time” using online venues such as chat rooms or MUDs, or by means of messaging or conferencing software. This paper examines the pros and cons of collecting qualitative data using online synchronous chat.
Methods Follow-up interviews were conducted with gay men who had already taken part in the Internet and HIV study, a study of high risk sexual behaviour among gay and bisexual men in
Results Online synchronous interviews appear to be suited to a more quantitative, structured format in order to reduce respondent burden, given the extra demands of typing in real time. The use of such interviews increases turnaround time through production of an instant transcript and the opportunity for respondents to slot their online interviews into other arrangements. This requires a flexible approach from the interviewer who also needs experience with online chat in order to adapt to the respondent’s style of communicating.
Conclusions Online synchronous interviews may be used in conjunction with or as a cost-effective supplement to face-to-face interviews. They may, for example, provide a cheap method for scoping out issues for future research or a tool for the rapid generation of data as part of a grounded theory approach, whereby data are collected from a variety of sources until emerging categories are saturated.
