Online Interviewing is a short, accessible and highly practical introduction to designing and conducting online interviews in qualitative research.

James and Busher focus on helping the reader to understand the methodological and epistemological challenges of carrying out online interviews in the virtual environment. They highlight the many new ethical issues that face researchers in this medium. The authors also encourage an engagement with the critical theoretical issues that must be considered in the conduct of online interviews. The resulting book is a well-reasoned introduction to the challenges and opportunities offered by online interviewing, drawing on a wide range of international sources to support these discussions.

This is an ideal first introduction for anyone who is interested in using online methods, and who has an interest in the theory of the method. It will be an invaluable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate level students in the social sciences, and for professional researchers.
