McKee, H. A., & Porter, J. E. (2009). The Ethics of Internet Research: A Rhetorical, Casebased Process. Peter Lang. DOI:10.1016/j.compcom.2010.03.003


Drawing from interviews with Internet researchers from across the globe who work in diverse disciplines and in a wide array of online venues, this book examines ethical issues and questions that Internet researchers may encounter throughout the research process. Although the ethics of Internet research are complex, the aim of the book is to provide a rhetorical, case-based process to aid researchers in ethical decision making. In doing so, the book provides Internet researchers with useful resources and heuristics for engaging in ethical practices, interactions, and problem solving for their research.
