Description & Coverage
Description:

Researchers are retiring conventional paper-and-pencil research methods and embracing an expanded array of online methodological options. In urban and planning studies, new digital tools, data accessibility, and online applications are changing how urban planning research is conducted.

Online Research Methods in Urban and Planning Studies: Design and Outcomes provides an overview of online research methods in urban and planning studies, exploring and discussing new digital tools and Web-based research methods, as well as the scholarly, legal, and ethical challenges associated with their use. Chapters from academics and professionals give an informed overview of groundbreaking online resources, review their strengths and shortcomings, and provide practical guidance on how to apply these new methods, online tools, and evolving data acquisition techniques.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer Interviews
  • E-Collaboration
  • Ethical Issues in Online Research
  • Legal Issues in Online Research
  • Online Data Collection
  • Online Research
  • Online Research Methods
  • Research Methodology
  • Urban Planning
  • Urban Planning Research Methods
Reviews & Statements

These essays, written by distinguished colleagues, from different academic and professional backgrounds, give an updated and well informed overview of some of the ground-breaking online research methods, their strengths and shortcomings, examine and discuss important ethical and legal issues, and provide, when appropriate, practical guidance on how to conduct and apply each of these methods. For all these reasons, I trust the book will be useful for students, teachers, researchers and practitioners in the field of urban and planning studies, and in related disciplines.
