New technologies and data collection in social sciences Organizers: Katja Lozar Manfreda, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, katja.lozar(at)fdv.uni-lj.si and Vasja Vehovar, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, vasja.vehovar(at)fdv.uni-lj.si
The permanent flow of technological advancements presents an important driving force for methodological development in social sciences. This session is seeking papers that will contribute to our understanding of how new technologies (especially Internet services and mobile technologies) are influencing the way we do quantitative and qualitative research in social sciences. We are especially interested in papers that would show how new technologies are used for collecting data. In particular, the following areas are of special interest:
- experimental comparisons of alternative design approaches (contrasting and/or mixing modes of data collection, including new ICT modes; contrasting and/or mixing qualitative and quantitative approaches using new ICT);
- exploration of methods for measuring and increasing data quality when new ICT are used for data collection,
- demonstration of the use of new and innovative research designs as frontiers of technology.
