Internet Research

Permalink for this paragraph 2 Internet research ethics literature has explored the question: Are there unique ethical issues within Internet research itself or are they simply “traditional” issues emergent in a new media? We take the stance that there are novel ethical issues and dilemmas in Internet research that exist precisely because of its particular qualities. Many ethical challenges may be successfully resolved through more traditional and established approaches: but when the limits of those approaches are reached, Internet research calls for new models of ethical evaluation and consideration.
